What weapons were used in The Revolutionary War?
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.
