    Selected infantry and cavalry ordnance stores on hand at Columbus MS Arsenal, Aug 3rd 1862

    Gents,

    Found this in the CSR of Capt. T Logwood, who had been in charge of the Arsenal at Memphis early in the war, that Arsenal was later moved to Columbus MS, and then mostly to Selma Alabama. Due to the large nature of the document I have taken a sample of gear most of interest to us. Of note are the large amounts of infantry equipments and Enfields in storage there. I'll be making a complete transcription later.

    Good stuff, Will. The second most numerous rifle was Kentucky rifles. Cool!
