America: The Story of Us, Part 2 | Source # 1 | Source #2 | American Long Rifle Lightweight Rifle Very Accurate 250 yards of distance | Although it was far more expensive to make then the musket, its ability to be aimed and hit with accuracy to 300 yards made it a personal favorite of these men , also because the cost of firing it was less; from not needing as much lead per shot and as much powder as the larger muskets. Those men grew up with these weapons and knew how to use them because they shot them each day to provide food for their families as well as protection.

This knowledge of their weapon and wilderness battle tactics made them natural candidates to fight a war in America. A Brief Synopsis of the American Long rifle | The Long Rifles of the American Revolution, made generally by German gunsmiths in Pennsylvania, were fine works of art, with barrels often over 4 feet long and covered in fine metal work and carving. The grooves inside the barrel, called rifling giving the weapon its name and long range, had to be carved by hand, and often individually. While its advantages as a firearm are clear to most; a rifle is accurate to over 200 yards, skilled shooters being able to hit man-sized targets at ranges of 500 yards.Smoothbore Musket Versus the Long Rifle in the Revolutionary War | Inoculations The Americans used puss from soldiers with the small pox to create an antibiotic by slathering puss on soldiers open wound. | Smallpox could have changed the results of the American Revolution.

How Smallpox Inoculations Helped Win the American Revolution | At the time of the Revolutionary War, there were several outbreaks of smallpox.

Tiny kittens and mother cats are probably one of the cutest things this world can offer. Have you ever seen a mommy cat and her kittens? Have you ever had to take care of them? A few years ago in 2009 I witnessed a very frightening experience. My mother and I were fostering mother cats and their kittens for the local animal rescue.

The little dog broke his leg in early 2012 and was never treated! Animal Services was asked to do a welfare check in December, picked up the dog, and asked APD to investigate. With funds from the Community Foundation of Abilene, Dr. Lynn Lawhon amputated the dog’s leg and he was off to a new home. Maybe his owner will be too!

Rarity: Not too Rare
Mini pigs are pigs that have been selectively downsized over many generations in order to produce a pig that stays small, and can therefore make a great indoor pet. A mini pig will generally grow 12-16 inches and will reach 25-65 pounds; similar to a smaller dog. Mini pigs need a lot of attention; they do best with a companion pig to keep them company. They work well for people with allergies because they have coarse hair, called bristles, rather than…
