Weapons in Early American History


Weapons in Early American History

SKU: 1262 Category:


Much has been written about early American history and the weapons that were used in the exploration and conquest of the continent. However, the correlation of those defining events and the weapons used in them has eluded historians and students of antique weapons alike. The purpose of this work then is to marry the weapons to the activities, rather than indulge in further detailed analysis of historic events or descriptions of physical characteristics of weapons used therein.

The weapons illustrated in the book are contained in the personal collections of the authors, augmented by examples from other sources. The text is derived from research of historical events and necessarily relies upon the many excellent published works of colleagues. The authors have endeavored to credit all those who came before.
