Re: Springfield M1873 ID Help

I live in Franklin, TN, and have 3 rifles that were all issued to someone for use in the Civil War (I know this has nothing to do with TD). I have searched what few records that I can find, read many soldier's letters and diaries, but never found one single mention of the serial number of the rifle or carbine. You would think state militia records, especially those of the US Army, would use the serial numbers to track the asset. I will be interested in what you can find.
