During the Civil War, sutlers followed the armies (mostly Union) wherever they went, and, when the armies went into camp, they set up right alongside them. Sutler's offered all the goods and creature comforts that the soldiers were used to having in their civilian lives. Goods offered by the sutlers ranged from clothing to whiskey to tobacco and everything in between. Listed below are some of the sutlers that work with the ACWS.
