Brown Bess Bayonet
- Media Type:
- This is a portion of a bayonet that would have been designed to fit on the muzzle of a rifle or musket barrel, making it into a close range weapon. The socket is complete. However, approximately 2/3 of the blade is missing. A bayonet would have been on arguably every soldier’s firearm during the War of 1812-1814.
Further research in 2010 suggests it is a British blade.
