    The horn helps to provide a little bit of a different perspective about history.

    I recently watched a PBS show that was produced by a love of liberty organization that
    promoted the stories of many black military heroes and patriotic soldiers throughout history,
    both men and women.

    Many "firsts" were mentioned, and the heroic deeds that black soldiers performed along with some
    1st hand accounts about them by other soldiers, quotes about them by military and political figures,
    their being awarded medals, and which was narrated by famous actors, about those special individuals.
    There was some authentic video footage as a backdrop for the more modern events.

    The show was hosted by Halle Berry, perhaps others have seen it.
    It pretty much ended with a military biography about the accomplishments of Gen. Colin Powell.

    The bottom line is that the show was about the loyalty and determination to serve that many black
    Americans have displayed throughout history despite not being treated equally by many in society,
    or being recognized by society for their military service and volunteering their lives.

    I watched the show more than once to be sure that I saw the whole thing because it was very
    informative and captivating.
    My local PBS broadcast the show several times in a row.

    For me, this powder horn provides an addendum to the show.
    Also, February is traditionally black history month in the US, which is
    "a way for remembering important people and events in the history of the African diaspora".

    Thanks for sharing.

    Very interesting. I hope at some point, someone is able to be allowed to photograph all angles of the horn and publish the photos and history of the horn - a great piece of history! Thanks for sharing.

    That puts the NFL "kneelers" to shame, doesn't it?

    Nice. Many of the high quality horns were made by black craftsmen.
    The solid soft lead bullet is undoubtably the best and most satisfactory expanding bullet that has ever been designed. It invariably mushrooms perfectly, and never breaks up. With the metal base that is essential for velocities of 2000 f.s. and upwards to protect the naked base, these metal-based soft lead bullets are splendid.

    Forget everything you know about loading jacketed bullets. This is a whole new ball game!
