[Civil War] Sibley Tent Construction

I'm looking for extant original Sibley tents to examine construction details in order to authentically recreate a Sibley Tent for an Arizona interpretive program. Anyone know of any out there or of any good information regarding thier construction details.

One thing I am especially curious about is if they were all hand sewn or if some might have been machine sewn as well. (No one it seems is reproducing a hand sew model and I want to know if we need to have one especially made or if one of the currently available reproductions is actually accurate.

I'm also looking for a source for an accurate tripod, stove, and pipe.
