Hello. No, you do not. Not necessarily. Yes, he was executed, at Walla Walla, WA in 1884 for defacing government property. OK, now to be serious:
The date is really "1873" - you need to look closer.
The serial number (which is???? - and don't ask where to find it) will give a close approximation of manufacture date, assuming the gun has not been fooled with since it left the army.
No record of him, AFAIK (but, what he did WOULD have gotten him in trouble).
