Spencers - Which was issued first the Spencer carbine or the Spencer rifle? While there is a Civil War legend about Lincoln approving the Spencer for service after receiving a personal demo from inventor Christopher Spencer. Unfortunately a month earlier than that affair, at Gettysburg, union cavalry forces were deployed with hundreds of Spencer rifles. Although the Spencer carbine was produced in far greater numbers than the rifle later in the war, the rifle was issued first to Federal forces.
I love this masculine stamp set! This is Stampin' Up! By the Tide stamp set. It was a simple card to make. For a list of the Stampin' Up! materials used click on the pin and take a visit at my blog. Made by Lisa Bowell-Stampin' Up! Demonstrator @ lisastamps.com
