  • Description

With no radio, television, or internet, distributing public information was difficult. Newspapers were available, but the governments preferred having their various proclamations and declarations printed by local printers. These were often printed as posters (broadsides) and then posted in public places like taverns, inns, and outside of public buildings. Various printers had government contracts to print the news and declarations from Congress, the King, or for the general public. Includes

  • Response to King's Proclamation -The Congress's answer to the King's proclamation of 1775
  • Tory Act - Congress's legislation on how to handle persons who remained loyal to the King
  • Embargo - The Congress declared an embargo on materials needed for the war effort
  • Traitor! – Looking for a continental turned loyalist in 1775
  • Pardon to Tories - A 1778 resolution offers pardon to all who switch allegiance from King to Congress.

I have a question I need labels for a 1859 Sharps it is a 54 caliber . I notice your labels say 52/100 caliber am I missing somthing

Hello,

The Sharps labels are copies of the labels found in Echoes of Glory, Arms and Equipment of the Union page 46. Since I print all my labels, I can put 54 on there if you wish. Just mention it in the comments when you order the labels. Thanks for asking. Bob

John,

The Sharps rifles at the time were 52 caliber. The modern reproductions are 54 to match modern made ammo.

I don’t sell a reproduction of the package, but someone made one years ago and gave it to me. I don’t know if it is an accurate reproduction or made up. If I can find it in my files I’ll send you information.
