Need some help from all the weapons experts.
Can someone tell me what type of rifle [Long Ranged Globe Sited]is described in the following quote from W.J. Bass' Autobiography:
The 7th Miss is stationed near Turner's Ferry NW of Atlanta on the Chattahoochee July 9th 1864.
Yankees would shoot at every noise We could only relieve the Pickets at night We had small pits dug and 4 men remained in each pit these pits were called redoubts.
The 9th was a misurable day one of the worst the 7th Miss experienced on Picket. Their Sharpshooters the Enemy kept one continuous fire the entire time they also had Sharp Shooters in rear of their line of Pickets in frount of us with long ranged Globe Sited guns that played havoc with us of times they were in boughs of trees and too far for our guns to reach them When we could locate them we often located them by the puff of smoke from their guns."
