Reenactment

Reenacting the American Civil War began even before the real fighting had ended. Civil War veterans recreated battles as a way to remember their fallen comrades and to teach others what the war was all about. The Great Reunion of 1913, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, was attended by more than 50,000 Union and Confederate veterans, and included reenactments of elements of the battle, including Pickett's Charge.

Recreational

Recreational shooting & plinking has been popular because, in rural areas, one could start plinking with a minimum of preparation and expense. In hilly country with clay soil providing a safe backstop it is as simple as gathering up a few stray cans. In many rural areas, up until recent decades plinking was essentially the only way to regularly practice marksmanship. Certainly, a rural shooter might improvise a formalized paper target but even then, the rest of the shooting experience had the character of plinking.

Custom Shop

Early firearms manufacturers began a heritage of elaborate embellishment and engraving of firearms that continues to this day. In the 1800's most firearm manufactures offered "Custom Shop" services where the customer could order models with custom features & engraving. Custom engraving and other decorative touches brought an aesthetic quality to a machine-made firearm that not only enhanced the appearance, but the overall value as well.
