Powder Horn


Powder Horn Many soldiers particularly in the American army carried powder horn and bullet pouch instead of cartridge box; some carried two horns, a large one for powder for the charge and a small one for fine-grained powder for the flash pan. These horns were slung by cords from the shoulders. Some of the soldiers who had artistic tendencies carved their horns or, rather, engraved them with crude but interestingly drawn objects, scenes, plans of the country where they were stationed, views of fortifications, etc., and added the date, their name, company, regiment, etc. Many of those Revolutionary-pictured horns are still in existence. Those that bear critical inspection, and those that conform with their descriptions in old wills and other documents are very interesting. But large new horns engraved by professionals were for sale in the stores less than a century ago. They were regular articles of commerce, not imitations. Also there are many recent imitations. The large horn shown measures 17 inches along the outer curve.
