Sutler's Store

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“A sutler’s store, Harper’s Ferry, Va. The sutler’s store at Harper’s Ferry represents one of those apparently inevitable evils which attend even the best-arranged armies. The negligence and delay of the government in settling with the troops rendered the sutler’s a necessary evil, which a more regular course would have obviated. As a study of human life, a sutler’s store is full of the most sorrowful reflections, and demands the most earnest care of the superior officers. A little pure stimulant, when administered with the rations, is capable of warding off many ills which flesh is heir to, more especially when under the prostration of fatigue or privation.” —Leslie, 1896
