May 20, 2014 Archive Insight

The Henry Ford holds a collection of firearms ranging across centuries: from a 16th century musket to an early 20th century shotgun. We’ve just digitized some noteworthy examples from the collection, including this striking German Wheel Lock rifle dating from around 1637. Be sure to visit our collections website to see several dozen firearms, accessories, and related items that we’ve digitized, including detail shots for many.
