Flints For Firearms

Date:

18th-century firearms used sharpened flint to create sparks that ignited gunpowder which fired the gun. These three flints were found at the 21st Royal North British Fusiliers (Royal Scots Fusiliers) encampment site on the Saratoga battlefield and at the surrender field in Schuylerville.
