I have inherited a Springfield 1873 "Trap Door" 45-70 Serial # 197970. This rifle( not carbine) has been in my family for quite a long time. My Grandmother said her uncle carried it in the Spanish American War. Is there anyway I can find out some history about it. Thank you in advance for any info.
