We took Mom to dinner after church at the Downtown Cafe in Thorndale. Next door is an antique shop (Country Roads) we frequent because it is owned by dear friends of ours. The guys were admiring some old muskets (I think that's what they are; they have bayonets on the ends?) And I suggested they go outside so I could shoot them shooting! They got into it, didn't they!? The text on the last pic (if you zoom in,) says, First Shiloh Militia, Circa Post 1850. The object on the ground which gave them a target was a "marker" left by a neigborhood dog.
