This authoritative book tells the story of the Harpers Ferry armory and provides an illustrated catalogue of the weaponry produced there. It will appeal to Civil War buffs, gun collectors, and others interested in the history of the Shenandoah Valley.
The firearms produced in Harpers Ferry were used in the Lewis and Clark expedition, the War of 1812, Commodore Perry’s voyage to Japan, the Mexican War, and in virtually all of the battles of the Civil War. Fully illustrated with photographs and drawings of all models of firearms produced at Harpers Ferry, this excellent work is as close as we are likely to come to a complete account of Harpers Ferry gunlore.
