Credit Line
This fusil is said to have been used at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. While it is of this era it would not have been used in the configuration it is in now. It has been cut down and modified to be used as a "coach gun." It is part of a diverse collection of militaria which was compiled by Edward F Hemingway.
