Henry's were manufactured in 1860-1866, and half of them are believed to have been used by Union soldiers, mostly purchased by the men themselves, some using reenlistment bonuses. "That damned Yankee rifle that can be loaded on Sunday and fired all week" was one of the most advanced firearms of the war. The Civil War era, 1863 production barrel on this example is stamped with the name "CHAS. R. NAGLE", that may have been of the Union soldier that carried it. The top flat of the barrel has the two-line Henry's patent and New Haven address. The serial number "4489" is on the left side of the lower tang, "2770" on the top flat of the barrel, and "12538" is marked inside the buttplate. It is fitted with a German silver blade front sight and replacement notch rear sight. The rifle has been converted to centerfire, the sling swivel is absent from the left of the barrel, and the hammer does not hold at full cock.
