American Military Shoulder Arms, Volume II: From the 1790s to the End of the Flintlock Period


George D. Moller

New data surrounding the procurement and modifications of arms produced by the national armories, and under federal contract procured by the individual states and by individual members of militias, is presented here for the first time. This information, interwoven with military, political, economic, and social factors, results in new and better definitions and a clearer understanding of the arms' historical context. Though this work focuses on military flintlock shoulder arms, details on the federal government's procurement of arms for Indians during rapidly changing military policies of the period is also included.


American Military Shoulder Arms, Volume II, contains more than three hundred photographs. As with the previous volume, Volume II is written primarily for students of arms, but also contains material of interest to historians, museum specialists, collectors, and dealers of antique arms.
