Civil War Relics
Gun Parts & Gun Tools

With the exception of the single shot pistol in the "Neat Stuff" section, I have never been fortunate enough to find a whole gun.   However, I have found a lot of gun parts.  Hammers, butt-plates, triggers, etc.   Apparently the soldiers stationed in or around Loudon County didn't throw away their guns, they just tore them into little pieces.
