What's So Special About the Henry?
The History is Facinating!
In 1860, Benjamin Tyler Henry patented The Henry Rifle. The country was embattled in the Civil War and these rifles made it into the hands of the Union soldiers by 1862.
This rapid fire rifle is credited with many battles and helping the Union eventually defeat the Confederate army.
One Confederate officer is credited with the phrase, "It's a rifle that you could load on Sunday and shoot all week long."
Abraham Lincoln Had a Henry
President Lincoln's engraved Henry rifle is a priceless national treasure.
From the website:
"President Lincoln's engraved Henry rifle, serial number 6, is one of the Smithsonian Institution's great treasures. The frame and buttplate are plated in gold; the stock is of lustrous rosewood. The President was intrigued by firearms and was a competent marksman."

I was amazed at the quality of customer service I received from this company. I called for more information and to request permission to use graphics and links. I was given an email address to write and received an immediate personal reply from the president of the company! He even asked if there was any way he could assist with the purchase even though they don't sell directly to the public. I could not ask for more personal assistance than that.
