More Information
Although the Henry rifle was the technical marvel of its age, many American military minds doubted whether the average mid-nineteenth century soldier could effectively operate it, and as a result the new rifle saw only limited purchase and use during the Civil War. Yet it quickly became a legend, and these revolutionary rifles that one could "load on Sunday and shoot all week" acquitted themselves very well on the battlefield.
