Sounds like a P53 Rifle Musket. On top of the barrell there should be either a pair of 24 or a pair of 25 stamped on the barrel. The lockplate should be marked: Enfield, Tower. L.A. Co, Barnett, Windsor. Depending on the stamp will depend upon the maker & it's usage. If stamped Enfield it would most likely NOT have made it to The US/CS during the war as most Enfields were reserved for Brit military usage.

Pics would be the best way to tell.
