Published on Jan 3, 2018

In this episode, you will learn proper terminology of the various parts and pieces that make up a Civil War musket. Learning the proper nomenclature can help you in discussions about these weapons. In addition, it will provide clearer communication during drill if you are a living historian. These terms are taught by showing images of the various parts being referenced on original and reproduction weapons.
