Since the slave trade started, based in England, no big surprise.

Just spotted this on FB. Apparently Canada still harboured rascism back then. Still does, but thankfully much diminished.

The above outfit (Lincoln Area Regulators) has closed after 4 years in SASS.
We were pretty brokenhearted about it, but it could not be helped.

However, there is great news:  A new SASS club has been affiliated only maybe 20 miles from there on a superb range.
It is the Lancaster County Bounty Collection Agency.  We're going by LCBCA for short.

It is near Firth.  And you will find it by looking up the NEBRASKA SHOOTERS.

The matches will be on the second Saturdays from April through October.

All side events. No overall. Shoot as many or as few as you want.

To list events and clubs from Arkansas too?
Specific serial number records for Canadian military longarms are extremely sparse, and I am unaware of any for the Spencers.

Another interesting tidbit from Edgecombe: although 100 Spencer carbines were shipped to Fort Garry, only 93 were received ... seven of them apparently having been stolen en route!

He also references a record that, as of 1 April 1874, Fort Garry Stores still held all 250 Peabody rifles, but only one Spencer carbine.
I looked at my copy of DEFENDING THE DOMINION, Canadian Military Rifles 1855-1955, David W. Edgecombe, service Publications, 2002. very interesting, but I cannot find any serial numbers for arms other than material transferred back to stores from the NWMP. (NO Spencers)
