I have this musket, and would appreciate any comments or valuations.
1861 Kentucky (?) musket (no rifling) , made by Bown and Sons, Pittsburgh, PA Enterprise. Bore dia. is approx. .50.
I acquired from family of original owner. Carried during civil war in battles in Mississippi (Corinth, Vicksburg, Tupelo, others). After the war the owner and this rifle traveled to Texas for a time during Reconstruction, and eventually returned to MS.
It is in original condition (no replacement parts or restoration has been done )and is fireable.
