    Need help identifying this trigger guard

    I dug this trigger guard near a large Union camp in Va. The area was also occupied during Colonial times. I broke it while digging it out of some roots but itís still mostly intact. Can anyone tell me the musket it came from? Also any thoughts on the chain would be appreciated. In the same general area this morning I also dug a Tombac button, a Merill carbine bullet, a roundball and an old file. Thanks.

    Your trigger guard is from a fowler. This type of guard was used by many different makers and is seen on long fowlers in the 18th century up to the early 19th century.

    BenVa68, Congrat's to you on a great save on the trigger guard and the other finds as well. This piece of History will display well. Well Done on the I'D Fullstock.
