American Rifle, A Biography

Under the guise of a Christmas gift for my husband, I have acquired a copy of Alexander Rose’s new book, American Rifle, A Biography. I have reluctantly agreed with him that he should thus have the opportunity to read it first.

Alex has been getting some outstanding reviews including one from the Washington Post which you can read here. You can catch up on more reviews over at Alex’s blog here.

    • obtained an interesting embrodiery of what I suppose are American, perhaps British troops in either the civil or revolutionary war, interested if someone could look at the stitching and identify the weaponary and perhaps the etiology of this piece of art
