Hello, Searching here on the web for a 'virtual tour' format site presenting some close-up views of a particular Brown Bess musket. Found this site and like it a lot for all it shows with close-up detail images of a particular musket. But especially too for all you intimate about where this Brown Bess musket may once have been. Perhaps it went to Fort Carillon with Abercrombie in 1757 or with Amherst in 1758, or maybe to Trenton and Princeton with Washington---or Hamilton! My search for resources here is to advise on an essay paper assignment for one of my American History class students at Ivy Tech Community College in Indianapolis. I leave this comment as a point of appreciation for you and as an item my student can maybe access in support of his studies in our course. Surely the images and information you offer here is such as to help him better hit the target of his 'history item' essay paper assignment for our course. Best wishes.
