The Potsdam Musket
By: COL (Ret) Carl M. Kruger
About the Book
The so-called Potsdam Musket was created out of the humiliating loss suffered by the Prussians at the hands of Napoleon in the early years of the nineteenth century. It pulled together elements from the most effective infantry weapons of the era and enjoyed almost six decades of use by several Armies in central Europe and those of the American Civil War.
The Potsdam is widely collected and many are shot in competition by members of the North-South Skirmish Association today.
This book seeks to provide answers to questions on the history, development, models and markings of the Potsdam Musket.
