Maine Made Guns & Their Makers

MAINE MADE GUNS & THEIR MAKERS, by Dwight Demeritt, explores the long and rich history of Maine’s firearm industry and the highly skilled Yankee gunsmiths, inventors, colorful characters, and entrepreneurs behind the scenes. It is also a story that adds to our understanding of Maine’s industrial history and the significant role of Maine’s gun makers during the Indian wars, the Industrial Revolution, and the Civil War. This revised, updated edition includes modern companies like Saco Defense, Inc., and the parallel history of Maine made cannons and shells. With over 400 illustrations and extensive appendices, Maine Made Guns & Their Makers is an invaluable resource for the collector or anyone interested in Maine’s extraordinary history.
