“Horse soldier”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

Husband and son thoroughly enjoyed the many displays of weapons from the civil war. We were able to wander around as much as they wanted. Very nice would recommend to any one with interest in guns.

“The Horse Soldier”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

It's really nice to look around in. They sell bullets from off the battle field, and the bullets here are cheaper than anywhere else in town. Even if you don't buy something it's really nice to look around at everything they have. I think they have good prices for their merchandise

“Extensive display”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

The interior of Horse Soldier is bigger than it appears - you'll walk through room after room of relics, the overwhelming majority of which are from the Civil War. Several cabinets are dedicated to items found in Gettysburg, sure to delight any tourist looking to take home a piece of our nation's history. Prices here are higher than in stores located elsewhere, though you'll be offered a certificate of authenticity, and the reputability of a business that's been around since 1971. The only drawback we experienced was a sales staff that could have been more helpful; they were happy to answer questions, but uninterested in going the extra mile to help us identify the perfect takeaway. Visit their online store to get more background information on items for sale, though you'll have to wade through items that have been sold to other buyers. Overall, a very satisfactory experience - a clean store, well-organized, and trustworthy sellers.

“A "museum" of sorts, where everything is for sale. What's not to like?”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

This shop is wonderful, and an amazing place if you are looking to purchase relics. The staff is helpful, and friendly. The store is worthy of seeking out, just to check out their incredible collection of items. I truly felt like I was in a museum.
