We regret neglecting to credit the Historical Society of York County, Pennsylvania, in our portfolio on the Kentucky rifle (February, 1973). This excellent institution was sponsor and co-publisher of the book from which our excerpt was taken.

We hope you enjoy our work.

Please support this magazine of trusted historical writing, now in its 75th year, and the volunteers that sustain it with a donation to American Heritage.
