Sharpshooting “Myths”

I have ordered a copy of Scott Hippensteel’s new book Myths of the Civil War. Drew Wagenhoffer has a review here. Much of the book seems to be about “sniping” and about debunking various incidents. I am skeptical about books that talk about “myths” but would like to see what Hippensteel has to say, so I’ve ordered a copy.

Meanwhile, you can see what out friend Cap and Ball has to say about long range black powder shooting with a period English target rifle.
