A bell tent is an ideal teepee tent for Australia
As we mentioned above, you are probably familiar with the design of the North American teepee from movies and TV shows. What you may not know is that the teepee was the model for the famous bell or Sibley tent. Henry Hopkins Sibley patented his design for his tent in 1858 after spending years researching Native American tipis. His original tents were much like the ones used by Native Americans – they had a round hole at the top for smoke to escape and a fire pit in the centre.
His tents were very popular, and you’ve probably seen photos of them in use by soldiers during the American Civil War in the 1860s. Sadly, Sibley never received any payment for the use of his patent because he resigned from the US Army to join the Confederate Army in 1861.
A quick look through history books shows that these tents were much in demand by explorers and archaeologists in the first part of the 20th century. The Sibley tent was also enormously popular in Australia between the 1880s and 1940s. They were the choice of Anzac troops during the First World War. Over the years, the design has developed into today’s famous bell tent: lightweight, stylish, comfortable and extremely simple to erect by one person.
