D-handled Knife or sword.

My GGGrandfather was a Federal captured at Stones River. He escaped from a prison train to Libby at Conyers GA. in a 1st LA.Reg.Inf. uniform. In the forties his son and my Grandfather donated his Solinger sword(Commission Officer) and what is booked as a Civil War Sword.I tried to post a picture but, to big.Can anyone give me the dimensions and possibly manufactures.Museum is going to look.The D-handled knife was only used by the south as far as I can find.Thanks
