Lunch Bite – French Model 1763 infantry musket
September 21, 2018 @ 12:30 pm - 1:00 pm
When the Revolutionary War began, the patriots were desperate for military arms. France quietly supplied the Continental Army with surplus weapons. This French Model 1763 infantry musket was one of the first to arrive. Join Executive Director Jack Warren for a discussion of how the French supplied our desperate need for arms and equipment and how we know that this musket, recently acquired for our collections, was one of the first French muskets supplied to the Continental Army.
The presentation will last approximately 30 minutes with time afterwards for up-close viewing of the musket.
