1863 Confederate Enfeild Tower Musket with original bayonet. This musket still fires and was acquired by me in the late 1980's.

Below the musket is Don Troiani's signed and numbered prints "Stars and Bars" and to the right is his "1st North Carolina Cavalry".

    Just curious, what's the provenance on the musket to show confederate use?

    It has a D carved on the reverse side on the stock also. I have no distinct documentation as it being Confederate. It came out of a rural North Carolina farm family and was told by the gentleman it was his grandads . I will get more pictures online later today.

    Enfields are a little tricky.

    Contrary to popular belief the US Government imported MORE Enfields than the CS government.

    Some markings are distinctive to CS imports and of course DOCUMENTED provenance can confirm CS useage.

    Those imported by the north probably ended out in the south as federal troops kept dropping them & the confederates picking them up.

    Doesn't make a lot of sense based on the outcome!
