This revolver was used by John Mosby's forces in one of the many raids on Fairfax, Virginia. The Confederate cavalry chieftain's most famous exploit occurred in Fairfax during March, 1863, when, posing as couriers, Mosby and his men kidnapped Union General Edwin Stoughton from his bed. About 200,500 Model 1860 Army Revolvers were made from 1860 through c. 1873. The Colt M1860 Revolver can be seen at the NRA National Firearms Museum in Fairfax, Virginia.
