Are there any existing records of what caliber and type of small arms were carried at Gettysburg by ANV regiments ? Winter is here and I'm working on a project whose subject I will reveal later. Any help is greatly appreciated.


Best regards, Larry.

Hi Larry,

Among the multiple books on my shelves which are about Gettysburg, there is a large volume titled The Gettysburg Companion, by Mark Adkin , a retired British Army Officer with a reputation for writing detailed volume styled narratives of Napoleonic battles.

There is considerable information about the weapons deployed by the two armies.

I’d be glad to give you a brief summary if you wish.

Regards, Phil

Hi Phil. Specifically I'm looking for the weapons carried by Archers brigade on July-1. Any information you can supply will be greatly appreciated.

Larry.
