Private Murphy was 18 when he enrolled and was described as being 5’7”, darkly complected with hazel eyes and black hair. This unit was all over and participated in skirmishes from Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas and Texas. Accompanying this gun is a letter signed by Frank Mallory of Springfield Research Service detailing where he found the records on this gun being issued to Private Murphy. Very neat identified Merrill Carbine!
