That is a fancy weapon for a private. Brass fittings. I have a very similar musket that is made with steel bands holding the barrel to the stock.

Strange that it should travel from New Hampshire or Massachusetts, where museums there would have strong reasons to want it, to distant Wyoming.

I would agree with that, but than the museum also has a Higgins boat from WWII, of which there are only two remaining.

The narrative does imply that is was his personal rifle.
