Holding off the Spanish at Charles Town,SC
you into the reenacting stuff?thats cool!
Now that is one cool muzzle loader, that thing must have a 50" barrel. Those reeactment clubs are some cool stuff. Keep the American heritage and dreams rolling.
What was a common musket that would have been found in the homes of the "minutemen"? I figure either the French musket of 1753 or the English Brown Bess. Any thoughts?
Comomon musket at the time was .50cal and they where a hodge podge of mfg. depending on where you came from or which nation sponsered the settelment.
I dont know who made it in the late 1600's, but it is a .70 cal smooth bore match cord ignition.
