2013 Plainsmen Encampment and Buffalo Shoot

<< < (8/8)

Hi Gabriel,

Our focus is primarily the western great plains during the expansionist period. This namely covers from the 1830s to 1865. Although this means that we show tolerance for the comparably advanced weaponry of the Civil War era, my suggestion would be something more commonplace like a plains rifle or other common hunting gun carried by civilians in transit across the American West.

One of my favorite sources for the look and gear of the era comes from an  1856 edition of Ballou's Illustrated Newspaper.
