Lunch Bite – A Short-Barreled Blunderbuss From the Period of the American Revolution
June 16, 2023 @ 12:30 pm - 1:00 pm
Historical Programs Manager Andrew Outten discusses a British blunderbuss that was made commercially in London, ca. 1770-1780. A precursor to the shotgun, this weapon was often issued to cavalry or naval troops for use in close-quarter combat. This Lunch Bite will offer not only a detailed examination of a blunderbuss from the Institute’s museum collections, but also a discussion pertaining to the history of blunderbusses, their technical components and attributes and their various potential uses throughout the American Revolution.
