Best Answer

The most valued weapon of the Civil War to the average soldier and cavalry trooper was the Henry Repeating Rifle in 44-40 rimfire caliber. Many Union soldiers spent the equivalent of 4 months pay to privately aquire this lever action rifle. Col. Mosby of the Confederate Partisan Rangers strained every nerve to aquire these guns stealing many from the First DC Cavalry. Only 10,000 of these rifles were made during the war. They were so valuable and effective that they were carried by the bodyguards of both Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis.
