Can you identify this sword?

I received an email from a web visitor (Jeremy). He bought a house and was cleaning out a shed where he found this nice looking sword. My guess is that it is an authentic Civil War era cavalry sword. Am I right?

I have more experience with medieval era weapons so this era (Civil War) is a bit out of my area of knowledge. But maybe you can identify this sword and tell me and Jeremy more about it!

Please feel free to send me an email if you can help!

Here are some pictures of it:
