This was invaluable for my research. I no little about firearms, but I quickly learned the differences between smoothbore and rifled muskets. I now have a much better understanding of the accuracy and the fraility of many of the arms used during the American Civil War. Joe writes in a way that is engaging while at the same time instructive. It is like taking a class from your favorite history teacher!
