One of our most historic Confederate offerings to date, this piece of history is being offered for sale to the public for the very first time. This good condition Leech & Rigdon came to us last March with a frozen cylinder. We have done our homework on this gun, and together with family members have compiled a complete genealogical history of the Walls family. Together with photos of all descendents to include current family members, Walls' military history and a notarized letter of ownership, we have completed a package of impeccable provenance on this gun. Born in 1834, Walls was a self-employed farmer and merchant who joined the 1st North Carolina 5/28/61 at the age of 25. Regarded by many Southern commanders as the best Cavalry Regiment in the Army of Northern Virginia, the 1st was engaged at all the major conflicts of the Eastern War under J.E.B. Stuart. Wall's muster rolls find him present through July of 1863 and on detached service from Aug. 7,'63 through July of 1864 when he was with Ward's Battalion at Lynchburg. This L&R is in good condition with all major parts being original with the exception of the loading lever latch. The right grip shows a chip to the front toe, and the gun shows black staining on various areas of the steel parts. All numbers are original and matching. This gun has never been cleaned, enhanced or messed with in any way. A true piece of identified Confederate history.
