Peter Smith's Sword

It is a sword from the Civil War. It isn't used; it's made of silver, gold, and leather. It is from America during the civil war. It isn't sharp but you can sharpen it. It’s important to me because it proves that my family has been in America since the Civil War. I don't know that much about it but I know it was from my great great great grandfather. I asked my Pops (my Grandfather) about the sword and this is what he wrote:
“The sword was my great grandfather's. His name was Peter Smith. He was in a cavalry regiment from Pennsylvania. He served in the Civil War. He was taken prisoner by the confederates. He supposedly escaped from the prison. I suspect however he may have been traded in a prisoner swap. His health was ruined and he received a pension for his life. He died young. He was my mother's grandfather from Williamsport PA.“
