Just ordered my "new" rifle"  M1884 Springfield Trapdoor, manufactured 1890.  Check's in the mail...
Glad to hear it!
With you ordering a rifle it would appear that you thought the GM was worth coming back to. ?

Oh, there was never any doubt that I would not return for another Muster - just as to how or what I would return AS.  I am leaning toward 20th Kansas in the Span-Am, or Infantry in 1880s Arizona - George Crook's campaign to capture Geronimo

Observation: the "Welcome Home" parade seems to show M1902 bell crown caps.  Wonder when that picture was actually taken, and of what unit, maybe a later reunion of the regiment perhaps?  Maybe a july 4 parade?
