“Now and Forever, One and Inseparable”
Massachusetts was a leader of the early antislavery movement during the 1830s, motivating abolitionists across the nation. Those in support of the antislavery movement in Massachusetts sought to influence public opinion and applied moral and political pressure on Congress to abolish slavery. This increased sectionalism in the North and South, one of the factors that led to the war. The dominant political figure in Massachusetts during the war was Governor John Albion Andrew, a Republican who energetically supported the war effort.
Once hostilities began, Massachusetts sent 159,165 men to serve in the army and navy. One of the best known Massachusetts units was the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry, the first regiment of African American soldiers.
Just as Massachusetts commemorates its participation in the War Between the States, the engravings are carved into the firearm, making it an heirloom to hand down for future generations. Whether your roots are deeply tied to Massachusetts or you simply want to own an exclusive Henry rifle, this firearm is the one for you!
