Re: Musket With Name On Stock
Very nice piece. My 1812 Whitney has the cone-in-barrel conversion. It appears that the use of a Hawken style hammer was quite common for conversions. I have an 1816 conversion with a similar hammer. There are some web sites where you can search the names of Civil was vets. I have an 1863 musket that was traced to the person who carried it. Try a google the name.
