Default Help Identifying some Firearms (Civil War Muskets, I think...)

I'm not too familiar with firearms so can someone help me identify the make and model of these Muskets. Also the approximate value in USD on average if I were to sell them. I believe them to be dating back to the civil war but I can't be sure. They are not for sale at this time so please don't contact me about that.
Thx a bunch!

This belongs in the black-powder and muzzle loading forum. A mod will probably be by shortly to move it for you.
You should also introduce yourself to the community here: http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f2/

As for the guns.... I am not expert on them, but here is what I know.
Both of those rifles are fired using a percussion cap. A musket is muzzle loading fire arm without rifling.
The top pic of your second post MIGHT be Civil War. It is a Springfield (the main arm of those days). The plate that with the lock on it appears to have an eagle on it. I believe that symbol was used by the military gun ordinance around the Civil War.
As I said, I do not know much. Someone who is more qualified than me could probably tell you which states they have been in due to a scratch there or a spec of dust here. lol

Hey man the bottom one looks like a Springfield model 1842. As for the top i have no idea. The problem is during the civil war the south especially, would take older flint locks and convert them to percussion. So it is hard to tell.
