Anyone know what units used this rifle? My father died when I was quite young and my mother gave me this rifle when I was older. All she knew about it is that it is a Mississippi Rifle that belonged to my dads family. I know nothing about his family neither did my mom. My dads parents were deceased when they married. I do know that his father was born in Mississippi(from my dads death certificate)and his family had lived there during the civil war. Would this be a gun that the confederates used?
