This was going on 150 years before the Civil War.

Back in the slow-to-reload days, it was pretty common practice to carry more than one. This goes back to BlackBeard's days even. From what I've read, when he was in battle dress, he would carry three braces (pairs) of cocked-and-primed pistols strapped across his chest and more at his sides.
