Very few, if any saw service in the ACW. There is a picture of Birge's Sharpshooters (a US Unit) that appears to have some being carried, but upon closer inspection they are not Hawkens. The Hawken has no place at any re-enactment that has standards. Those who carry them are usually quickly given the appelet "FARB" or worse: cowboy. Deserved or not the Hawkens and the "Zouve" both have garnered a place of shame in the community.
