Fusil de Dragon 1766-70
This musket started life as a flintlock Fusil de Dragon 1766-70 with the 2nd Transformation which involved a completely new .69cal rifled barrel which is dated 1837 and a conversion to percussion lock. My question is could this musket have been imported to equip either side in the ACW?
During the American Civil War thousands of Canadians answered the American call to arms. Figures vary from 30,000 to 55,000 Canadians fought for both sides. With fatal casualty averaging one in five, as many as 11,000 died and with one in seven wounded up to 8,000 wounded. There were 19 Medals of Honor won by Canadians.
