Cook & Brother Rifle

<< >>
Description (Brief)
Ferdinand and Francis Cook were Englishmen who produced Enfield type firearms in New Orleans at the beginning of the Civil War. When New Orleans fell to the Union Navy in 1862 they relocated to Athens, GA and continued to produce rifles, musketoons and carbines for the Confederacy. This .58 caliber Infantry rifle closely resembles a P1858 Enfield rifle.
