This thoroughly documented reference identifies the guns used in America during eastern settlement and westward expansion. Covering weapons in use from colonial times through the first half of the nineteenth century, the very readable account describes traders, trappers, soldiers, and Native Americans who made, sold, and used weapons. Accompanying the survey of military arms, small cannon, and other accessories are rare illustrations of everything from antique muskets to bullet molds — all clearly identified.
