Eastern Woodlands

The symbol of the cross has been on clothing, rifles and possibles bags for centuries; this one has a Spanish flavor and would have been seen throughout the Southern Rockies during the fur trade.

However, this hunting pouch started extensively in the eastern woodland Appalachians, before and after the French and Indian War.

It is important to remember that most of the early colonists, immigrants and mountain men were Christian, and religious symbols would have been popular motifs to carry with them on their travels.

Price: $190.00
