Confederate Bowie Knives of the Georgia State Arsenal by Josh Phillips (9781427632197):

Table of Contents

"When the retreat commences ... keep close at their heels with the knife, till each man has hewed down, at least, one of his adversaries.

Thus encouraged the Civil War governor of Georgia, Joe Brown, the patriotic young men in the defense of the state. He further pleaded with the regions mechanics to aid in the impending arms crisis:

I have already a considerable number of these ... knives, but I desire, within the next month, ten thousand more ... I must have them; and I appeal to you, as one of the most patriotic class of our fellow citizens, to make them for me immediately...

In this comprehensive study of the Confederacys only regulation-issue side-knife, the author identifies the craftsman that answered the governors call and the huge Bowie knives that they turned in to the state arsenal at Milledgeville, Georgia in the summer of 1862.
