I’ve read the book. One that was hard to put down once started. A recommended read for all muzzleloaders.
Thanks guys. I was contemplating ordering one of them and now will. I notice there are two(?) by the same author, Jack Hinson's One-Man War, A Civil War Sniper and Battlefield Sniper: Over 100 Civil War Kills both by Lt. Col Tom McKenney.I have read the book as well. Starts out slow I thought but I am glad I stuck with it. I certainly was sympatric with him.
I believe there are 38 "o"'s on the top barrel flat. Just like notches on a pistol grip for boat or army captains and others.......Thanks for adding the details on the rifle and the maker, I had looked some myself without much success. It might be interesting to try to build a replica of Hinson's rifle.
Ummmm, you read the book? You watched these videos? You live in the area where he was? What factual documentation you want?I just can't understand how this completely fabricated legend continues on into the 21st century. Not a single "fact" in the story can be documented.
