Constructed in 1867

The U.S. Springfield and the British-made Enfield were the two basic firearms of the Civil War period. Both muzzleloaders had a similar .58 caliber bore, so ammunition was interchangeable. With practice, each weapon could be loaded and fired ten times in five minutes.

Although the Springfield was more dependable and easier to use, some soldiers believed the Enfield had a slight edge in accuracy.
