I am so amazed at the muzzleloaders on this forum. It's what got me hooked. I wish they had a category for showing them off. Maybe now is the time to post some pictures. I have seen NO 2 alike, real beauties.

Circa 1560 wheellock carbine as originally traced to the Beretta family, this one came over on the Mayflower that landed in Plymouth, Mass in 1620, and ended up in the possession of the John Alden family.

Attributed to ownership by John Alden, one of the Pilgrim leaders of Plymouth Colony. Alden, who embarked on the Mayflower as a 20-year-old cooper, joined Captain Miles Standish's Militia to defend the settlers from outside attacks.

This single shot arm was originally a .50 caliber rifle, but extensive usage has removed almost all traces of rifling. Discovered during the restoration of Alden's home in Duxbury, Massachusetts in 1924, this piece is typical of many arms possessed by the early New England settlers. Alden's home was occupied by members of his family from 1653 through 1896. This home survived nearly 350 years without being ravaged by fire, a common fate of early American residences.
