Confederate private’s Harpers Ferry ‘Mississippi Rifle’
Description  

Harpers Ferry Model 1841 musket lightly carved on the stock in large letters, “TN,” and believed to have been carried by Confederate Thomas J. Northcott, a private in ‘I’ Company, 45th Regiment, Tennessee Infantry. The weapon was manufactured before the Civil War and measures an overall 58″ long. This piece was originally acquired in Middle Tennessee with oral history of belonging to Northcott. These rifles earned the sobriquet of ‘Mississippi Rifle’ from use in the Mexican-American War, during which Jefferson Davis led a regiment of Mississippi volunteers and advocated for the use of this model. Accompanied by photocopies of Northcott’s war records. Provenance: Rebel Relics.
