Abstract
Description
One of the pitifully small number of manufacturers who provided weapons to the South prior to and during the Civil War was William Glaze of Columbia, South Carolina. The weapons produced by Glaze at the Palmetto Armory constitute the majority of South Carolina's small arms production during the antebellum and Civil War years. This short paper is intended not only to highlight the career of William Glaze but also to assist collectors in identifying and authenticating Palmetto Armory weapons.
