The most common form of music for the Civil War soldiers were the fife and drum. There was little to these instruments, which made them easy to carry, maintain and use. The fife is a basic wind instrument, which has been around for ages.

This is an original fife made by the Crosby company. You can still see the company name stamped into the rosewood. Crosby made their fifes out of rosewood or mahagony. This fife has definatley seen much use. The finger holes are worn smooth and the wood has become very dark. The silver end tips are in good shape. A silver mouthpiece was added at sometime, and I do not believe it came that way from Crosby. This is a rather rare Crosby, as it is about 3 inches longer that the ususal models. I believe that the length determines the notes/tones. Overall in outstanding condition, and certainly an original.
