Ancestor Armory

There's a Civil War cavalry saber from an ancestor, although I'm not sure which one. There's an 1876 French sword bayonet my great-uncle brought back from the First World War. There's a single-shot rifle my step-grandfather had when he was in the cavalry in the early 1900s. There are several bayonets. 

And a truly vicious brass knuckles/knife combo a WWII Navy vet neighbor gave me. He said he won it in a card game.

If you grew up in the Fifties and Sixties, the odds were high that you'd acquire a lot of weapons.

Along with more modern pieces, we're ready for any zombie invasion.
