Test Placement of Artifacts Precedes Permanent Installation

exhibit case

Test installation of artifacts in display cases is underway in the permanent exhibition galleries. Pictured on August 1, in the first case visitors will encounter as they enter the galleries, are (top to bottom) a British Pattern 1742 land service musket dated 1741, a circa 1745 French Model 1728 (St. Etienne) musket, a circa 1750 early American (probably Virginia) long rifle, and an American powder horn inscribed “Jabez Hall 1757,” all in the collection of the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation. The socket bayonets next to the British and French muskets are on loan from a private collection.
