Any information on how the Marine battalion was armed? Presume Wells might have secured the latest Springfield rifle muskets for the new batch of recruits, but then Navy penny-pinching might have supplied something less current. Historically the Marine Corps has always prided itself in making the best possible use of older generation arms and equipment.
