I remember at Antietam the guide showed a picture of a federal .69 caliber musket they unearthed. It had either four or five rounds in the barrel.Given there is ample evidence of modern-era boneheadedness when it comes to mistakes with weapons, what would be equivalent boneheaded errors in Natty Bumppo’s time, with firearms of that era? Presumably equivalent mistakes could be made, likely with more fatal outcomes.
Remember my DH says my mind is like a lint trap, all kinds of stuff gets stuck in there.
I'm thinking someone was a tad....rushed? Or nervous?
