Are these Union or Confederate Sabers?

The UVA football helmet as well as other UVA sports team logos have military sabres on them that appear to be from the civil war era.

  1. Are these union or confederate sabres?

2. Will this be the next outcry?

3. Where does this end?

4. Can there be Cavaliers without swords?

5. Would the Virginia state bird or flower be a better symbol than swords?

  1. Sports teams are meant to be warriors. Those Sabers are non-denominational and better not get replaced by a freaking dogwood flower. ? Well, at least the state flower is not a pansy. ??
