“Vincit Qui Patitur”: The Life of an American Armsmaker- Colonel Samuel Colt

Here’s Ranger Bert Barnett of the Gettysburg National Military Park in the 2017 Winter Lecture Series speaking on the life of Colonel Samuel Colt.

The video’s description reads, “The American Civil War saw transformative industrial development on an unprecedented scale. Inventor Samuel Colt obtained his first revolver patent at the age of 22; and during the Civil War, his company manufactured and sold over 375,000 of ‘The World’s Right Arm’ to the Union. You may know guns. But just who was this Hartford boy-genius, and what is his story?”
