Reproduction 1859 Remington cap and ball black powder revolver. This revolver was used by both the North and South in the US Civil War. Those used by the South frequently had brass receivers due to the shortage of steel in the South, and this construction yieded an inferior product to those made of all steel. The Remington revolver was often considered to possess a stronger frame than the more famous Colt revolver owing to the steel top strap located above the cylinder, and which was abscent in the Colt.

The revolvers were frequently carried by the calvary due to the relative ease of use on horseback as opposed to the cap and ball rifles which predominated at that time. Both the Colt and Remington revolvers had removable cyinders, allowing extras to be loaded in preparation for battle.

The table on which it sits is a family antique having belonged to my great-grandmother (I was born in 1955). There were no nails used in its construction- all fastening is done via wood dowel, as was common at that time.

Daddy's Watch (Wishing We Could Keep Time)

My Daddy's Remington pocket watch. It still keeps perfect time. It reminds me that we do not have unlimited time with those we love. We need to make sure we use every minute in a good way. I have always been so grateful that I told my parents how much they meant to me. There cannot be too many kisses or too much time.
