ahare19 Nothing like Saturday night stories around the Campfire, playing music, singing and laughing. Except when you plant the seed for future reenactor's.This gentleman is Ravn, a Norwegian immigrant of 7 years. His son bought his first uniform today after our talk the day previous. Looks like Federal Artillery will have 2 new recruits. I told him he picked the wrong side!!! #reenactor #reenacting #livinghistory #livinghistorian #civilwardays #civilwarsunday 23h

ahare19 Today for #originalfirearmsfriday we have an 1832 Hall rifle. It's a Civil War converted flintlock in .54 caliber, one of the earliest American breech loading firearms. 33 &1/2 rifled barrel and 53 &1/4 O.A.L. the original "hashtags" on the left hand side of the stock number 38.... I have the bayonet also which is not pictured. A very storied firearm indeed. #hall #1832 #rifle #americancivilwar #reenactor #reenacting #livinghistory #livinghistorian #harpersferry #54 #conversion #musket #originalfirearms #hallrifle #confederate #civilwardays #54cal #firearmfriday 2w
  •   brm1977 Wow! That's a crazy item!! 2w
  •   nicholsguitars I've been really obsessed lately with guitars from this era and especially the finish methods @ahare19 . I never really considered how the civil war spanned the time period. That's such a major component that I overlooked. I know your pretty deep into this culture, let me know if you come across any varnish information in your endeavors. I guess that I'm a bit of a historical reanactor myself. Ha! 1w
  •   ahare19 @nicholsguitars I have a few older pieces, but I know more reenactor's who have even older. I met Bobby Horton 2 years ago who was awesome and had an 1859 Martin. ... he said "pick it up and play it!" I was mortified and couldn't! I just couldn't!!! I could scratch something looking at it! I am not that cool, but I know cool people!!! 1w
  •   nicholsguitars Ha ha! Go ahead and scratch it, then send it to me so I can fix it! I love those old guitars 1w
