The Historic Trades section is for original articles on and videos of the everyday objects made or used in the early South, on those trades people who produced these objects, and on the consumers of these objects. This section covers a wide range of subjects from longrifles and
accessories, to quilts, to knives, swords, and axes, to mundane wrought nails, to everything else in common use.
