The state of New York during the American Civil War was a major influence in national politics, the Union war effort, and the media coverage of the war. New York was the most populous state in the Union during the War, and provided more troops to the Union Army than any other state. By the time the Civil War ended in 1865, New York had provided the Union Army with 27 regiments of cavalry, 15 regiments of artillery, 8 of engineers, and 248 of infantry.
The Empire State was politically divided, with a significant peace movement, particularly in the mid- to late-war years, as well as being a strong bastion of Radical Republicans who favored harsh treatment of the rebelling Confederacy.
Just as New York 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 New York or you simply want to own an exclusive Ithaca Shotgun, this firearm is the one for you! The rifle is 100% made and engraved in the U.S.A. and will last a lifetime.
