This is a history of gunsmithing in America. Although the English guild system regulated the trade in the Mother Country, Americans, as usual, preferred freedom to regulation. This book examines the gunsmithing trade in relation to the militia; apprenticeships; labour; tools and equipment; the Frontier gunsmith; and traitors, criminals, and deserters.
