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.

You may know guns. But just who was this Hartford boy-genius, and what is his story?”
