FC: Weapons of The Civil War
1: The hand gun was a legit weapons for its time you could fire multiple times without reloading. Mostly officers used the hand guns.
2: Weapons like this one were used by most guys on the battle field it was the most accurate of all weapons
3: This gun had a longer barrel for more accurate shots it was a muzzle loading which means that u had to put the powder and packing and ammo in from the top. They took forever to load until bullets came out. the inside of the barrel it was grooved to make the bullet spin giving it more accurate shots and farther distance shots which made it easier to shoot people from 60+ yards away.
5: The south didn't have all the weapons the north did because they never thought of making factories to produce more ammo and guns. they had about seven different groups of different weapons pretty sad i think.
7: The north had it pretty dang good. They had about twelve different groups of guns that the used some groups such as hand guns,and riffles. They had factories that helped make ammo and guns which put them ahead of the south.
