Converted Prussian Model 1809 percussion musket

During the Civil War the Federal Government and the States purchased foreign weapons to complement domestic pieces. This Model 1809 Prussian musket is one of more than 4,500 such weapons added to the Minnesota state arsenal. The outdated Prussian muskets were used for drill training or for issue to troops far behind the front lines, and many were turned over to civilians after the war. This musket was issued to Hans Johan Johnson, a private with Company H of the 9th Minnesota Volunteer Infantry.
