i was told this gun is from the mid 1800s but i cant seem to find anything that resemble it. i couldn't get a pic of the small markings on the barrel.

Yeah, Cane carried it during the Rev War.
All kidding aside, that is a beautiful piece. Somebody on here will be able to ID it. Welcome aboard!

Can't tell for sure from pics- but do a Google image search for Enfield Musket. most of those and the Springfield muskets date from early 1860s.
Can you post ANY markings that are on the weapon?
It's an Austrian Lorenz.

i really am grateful for the help guys. it is the lorenz. now i am also looking for an average price of one in fair shape because it will be for sale.
Realistically you're looking at the 600-700 range. You might put it on one of the online auctions and get a tad more. There's one on gunbroker now with a startup bid of 850 that started on the 1st with two days left and no bids.
