“An absolute must if you go to Gettysburg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

I was looking for a place to buy a real relic of Gettysburg and saw this place. I was in shock at all the history available for sale. It was like being a kid in a candy shop. I absolutely loved it and bought a nice gunpowder horn from the war. I highly recommend this shop.

“Amazing collection of historic items for sale!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Ever see something at a museum and think "That would be cool to own that" well stop in the Horse Soldier, and you can do just that! They have an amazing collection of historic items that are for sale. Of course, history does have a price for items that are truly priceless; however, they have fair prices on their items.

“Wow, this place is unbelievable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

They have more neat stuff here than you can possibly imagine. This is a must-see. It's actually a store and everything in the place is for sale, but it seems more like a museum because everything in the place is some kind of original, super-cool thing from the civil war: muskets, swords, uniforms, cannons (yes, cannons).

Honest salespersons with a wealth of information. They take the time to ensure you know what you are buying and help you find what you are seeking. Great reputation is well deserved.
