On tonight's Curator's Corner, National Firearms Museum Senior Curator Phil Schreier joins John Popp and Cameron Gray by phone to present some examples of the weapons of the American Revolution. Schreier explains images of the famous "Brown Bess" and Committee of Safety muskets used at the bloody Battle of Oriskany, along with rifles fired by American sharpshooters. These guns are accurately depicted in paintings of the battle, which he has on hand. Schreier also talks about his experiences at the 2010 National Boy Scout Jamboree at Fort AP Hill, Virginia.
