The English Cartridge traces the history of the cartridge used in the Enfield rifle from the early development of the Minié bullet in France, to the dramatic yet ultimately unsuccessful attempt by the Confederate States to adopt the Enfield cartridge for the Southern armies in the American Civil War. The role of the Enfield "greased cartridge" in the outbreak of the Indian Rebellion of 1857-1858 is carefully handled. Each development of the Enfield cartridge from 1853 to 1864 is covered, with over 60 helpful illustrations. 249 pages.
