Yesterday I sold my extra car. Didn't advertise or anything....a friend of ours just offered me $6,000. So after a little deal making I sold it and then....went online and ordered a 1861 Springfield Rifle.

According to my ancestor of the 42nd Indiana records there was a charge of 25 cents in 1864 for a new Springfield Rifle sling. So it will be cool to know that is the rifle he carried into battle.
