Nordstatshæren marsjerte mot Virginia
På ordre fra president Abraham Lincoln begynte Nordstatshæren under general Irvin McDowell en marsj på 25 miles mot Virginia. Feltarmeen som marsjerte ut fra Washington var den største som noen gang var samlet i Nord-Amerika, og besto av rundt 35 000 menn. Marsjen kulminerte i det første slaget ved Bull Run, som var det første landslaget av betydning i den amerikanske borgerkrigen. Hadde Nordstatene vunnet slaget kunne krigen blitt kortvarig, men Sørstatene vant og fortsatte kampen i fire lange år.

    • Sharps Model 1874: Part 1 - Background History

      During the 1870s and 80s a widespread slaughter of the American bison decimated the herds to near extinction. The professional hunters used powerful single shot breech-loading rifles, most often in calibre .50, .45 or .44. The most legendary rifle used on the buffalo ranges was, perhaps next to the Springfield Model 1873 \'Trapdoor\' and the Remington rolling block, the legendary Sharps Model 1874.
