Civil War Union US Bridle Boss


* Proudly worn of the head bu US Cavalry Horses during the American Civil War. 


** Bridle Boss **

It is gilded bronze and a superb example of an ornament attached to the side of the curb bit. Bridle bosses are also known as cheek bosses or cheek pieces, though the term “cheek piece” also applies to leather straps attaching the headpiece to the bit on a modern bridle.


** The American Civil War **

The American Civil War was a civil war fought between the United States and the Confederate States of America. The central cause of the war was the status of slavery, especially the expansion of slavery into territories acquired as a result of the Louisiana Purchase and the Mexican–American War. On the eve of the Civil War in 1860, four million of the 32 million Americans were enslaved black people, almost all in the South.
