Sword of Virginia, Battle of Second Manassas - August 30, 1862 by Don Troiani
As he thundered toward the roaring cannons, Colonel Skinner brandished his tremendous sword, a French Cuirassier saber he had brought home from Europe as a youth. The massive straight blade measured 38 inches long and bore an engraved maker’s imprint of August 1814. “In his cups,” a Confederate staff officer wrote, “the fine old Colonel would swear he should die happy could he have one chance to use that steel on the enemy.” That chance loomed large at Manassas.
