Union Longarms and Accouterments

Probably the three most widely used arms of the war were the U.S. Army's Springfield Model 1842 musket (4) and Model 1861 rifle-musket (10), and the British Enfield Pattern 1853 (13) which was imported from England in large numbers. Despite the availability of these relatively modern weapons, such antiques as the Model 1816 (1) were still in use.
