Soldiers during that time mainly used muskets with bayonets

attached to the end. Some soldiers could afford a single shot

rifle. The sailors and Navy would most likely use flintlock pistols

as did pirate Sir Francis Drake.

Artillerymen would have the cannons (obviously) and short

swords. The Calvary Men would have model 1763 Sabers and

sometimes Flintlocks like the Navy.
