Civil War Desk

Both the the Union and Confederacy army had these portable writing desks. Mosly carried by the officers to fill out the daily reports, letters home, or keeping a journal. Our Civil War Lap Desks are a writing slope style with a single lid to open. This lid is the writing surface. The space under the lid is were the ink well and paper are located. This pine desk has brass hinges. The corners are pegged for more strength for the long march.
