whip

1838 - 1845

Any soldier responsible for a team of horses or mules would have had occasion, in all likelihood, to make use of a whip. That group would generally be limited to drivers, wagoneers, and teamsters. Most whips would not have been of the twelve-foot long variety that so often found its way into the movies, but was most often a three-foot or four-foot long whip.
