Most of the Henry Rifles manufactured by the New Haven Arms Company during the Civil War were privately purchased by individual Federal soldiers; primarily in Illinois (such as the 7th Illinois Volunteer Infantry Regiment), Indiana and Kentucky. These rifles saw extensive service during the Atlanta Campaign and other battles in the western theater of operations. A nice example of a Civil War production Henry rifle.
