Finding Uncle's Navy colt revolver from Civil war service
My great great uncle served in the 152 Reg., Battalion G of the Penn. Volunteer Artillery. He was a driver, then an officer. He served in PA and VA almost at Gettysburg and later with Butler at Fort Monroe, VA. I have his diary and he mentions getting a Navy Colt Revolver and wrote sown the serial number. Is it possible I could even find his gun?
If you can find the armory paperwork showing the info on the weapons issued it should have serial numbers etc. so you can find out all the necessary details but in between then and now there is no telling what happened .Good luck with your search man
