OVERVIEW

While the design was influenced by the German Jaeger rifles and the slender English and French fowling pieces of the early 18th Century, the Kentucky is uniquely American, and, like Daniel Boone, Davy Crockett and Andrew Jackson, reached near-mythical status.
 
USA 19th Century: The name Kentucky Rifle is largely a misnomer - they were primarily made in Pennsylvania, although Maryland and Virginia gunsmiths contributed a fair share. These rifles were popular from the Revolutionary War to well into the 19th century. The Kentucky name came about as a result of the Battle of New Orleans, which was substantially won by these rifles, in the hands of two thousand frontiersmen from Kentucky. While the design was influenced by the German Jaeger rifles and the slender English and French fowling pieces of the early 18th Century, the Kentucky is uniquely American, and, like Daniel Boone, Davy Crockett, and Andrew Jackson, reached near-mythical status. The Kentucky rifle was one of the first to feature a "rifled" bore that made it extremely accurate for its time. This non-firing version shows the graceful lines for which the Kentucky became renowned.
