I own an 1863 muzzle loader used at two battles that I know of because they are carved into the stock. Five Forks and Cedar Creek. Union

Very interesting! Do you have any more of the back story on the gun? Based on the two battles and which units were present at both, you probably own a weapon used by a member of Sheridan’s Cavalry Corps. If you’d be willing to share, I’d love to see a picture of the weapon as well.
