Hello everyone, I am looking for any good online sources or books that go into detail about the different bullets used in various firearms in the 1800s, especially with a focus on the American Civil War to the 1890s if possible. I have some round balls, Minie bullets, complete original .69 ( buck and ball) and .58 ( Minie) caliber cartridges in clear tubes, atleast one .44 Henry round, one or two Eley paper cartridges, and other rounds that I would like to learn up on. If yall have any suggestions on good books or online sources/websites on this subject, I am all ears. Here are a couple of pictures of what I currently have to learn up on. Thanks everyone!
