Hi Folks:
I am not a regular but do drop in occasionly to review good stuff but now I have a request:
Can anyone steer me to a book or source describing American manufacture (or import of) small arms ammo during the American Civil War.
I am fairly well read on those years and familiar with Caleb Huse and others but can’t seem to find a decent description of ammo manuacturef and supply during that period.

Dean Thomas’s three part book series “Round Ball to Rimfire a History of Civil War Small Arms Ammunition” covers manufacturing, procurement and development of ammunition from the Civil War.
