2: The Springfield fired a .58 caliber minie ball out of its forty inch barrel | The Springfield weighed about nine pounds. The effective distance of about 600 paces was very handy in battle. Most rifles used flintlocks but this one used percussion caps

3: The users of the Springfield had a great advantage over their enemy. Now able to fire twice as far as before.

4: The Springfield was used by few soldiers but was one of the most deadly rifles used during the Civil War.

5: At the beginning of the Civil War the Springfield was very scarce, but as | the war went on its accuracy and reliability was noticed and started to mass produce. Most of the other rifles were drooped because they couldn't keep up with the Springfield.

6: Every man who carried this weapon benefited from its power. But also the men without the Springfield had an enormous disadvantage.
