I received this message form Craig Russell of the U.S. 15th (and
organizer of the annual Plattsbsurgh event) this morning and am
passing it on to 1812 list.

Subject: Musket Question
I have 2 very reliable 3rd Model Bess Muskets which we have
used in our
4th NY Reenacting unit. They are 2 of our best working muskets
really are not appropriate for Rev war. Do you know of any
where I might be able to offer these to trade with War of 1812
re-enactors who may have an older Charleville or 1st or 2nd
thye would like to trade?
