Jefferson Davis’ Revolver
Arms and Armor, Guns, Jefferson Davis, Kerr's Patent Revolver
Jefferson Davis’ .44 (.54 bore) Kerr’s Patent Revolver
A Kerr’s Patent Revolver with provenance indicating that it was one of two presented by Confederate President Jefferson Davis to the commander of his personal escort, Captain Given Campbell, Duke’s Cavalry Brigade, May 4, 1865, shortly before Davis’ capture by Union forces is being offered for sale by Ziern-Hanon Galleries. Not cheap, but quite a piece of history.
