Anyone know how many 1777's were used in the Revolutionary War? We've got one with "rec Culpeper VA" (not exact--I'm writing from memory on this as gun is at my fathers)on the barrel and am trying to learn more about it. I know one French Unit (Rochembleu sp?) was armed with them. I am intrigued by the Culpeper inscription. One person thought it might have been put on in an effort to turn a Napleonic arm into a fake Revolutionary arm. It is a pre IX model. Any info or sources would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
