Part 2 of the series on Benjamin Tyler Henry’s invention: The Henry Rifle. It was Mr. Henry who conceived the first practical, lever action repeating rifle. Patented in 1860, the Henry gave a single man the firepower of a dozen marksmen armed with muzzle-loading muskets.
After an encounter with the 7th Illinois Volunteer Infantry, which had the good fortune to be armed with Henry's, one Confederate officer is credited with the phrase, “It’s a rifle that you could load on Sunday and shoot all week long.”
