U.S. Model 1840 percussion conversion rifle marked ""Monroe Blues"". This gun has a nice inlay on left hand side of the stock that reads ìPresented by the Monroe Blues toî (there is space to be filled in). The reverse other side of the stock has an eagle in flight brass inlay. While both the North and the South had ìMonroe Bluesî units, the eagle leads us to believe this was probably Union. The Union Monroe Blues was the 12th Militia of New York. Very interesting gun that could be further researched.
