Firearms of the American West, 1866-1895

Firearms of the American West, 1866-1895

by Louis A. Garavaglia, Charles G. Worman

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Maintaining the high standards they established in volume one ( LJ 10/1/84), the authors conclude their study of firearms in the American West. Under discussion are the firearms used by the military, civilians, and Indians in the period from the end of the Civil War to 1894, which marked the beginning of the modern era with the invention of high velocity smokeless powder ammunition. With material drawn from primary sources and more than 500 photographs, this encyclopedic study is rich in both detail and history. Highly recommended for appropriate collections. George F. Scheck, Naval War Coll. Lib., Newport, R.I.
