Benjamin Tyler Henry: The Forgotten History of the Inventor of the Legendary Henry Rifle
At a young age, he became an apprentice gunsmith, working his way up to the foreman at Robins & Lawrence Arms Company of Windsor, Vermont. It was here that he worked with Horace Smith and Daniel B. Wesson on the volitional repeater, which would eventually become the Henry rifle.
Have a listen to hear Sam and Molly discuss what made Henry’s repeating mechanism so disruptive and the role it played in the Civil War. Sam talks about Henry’s complicated partnerships with other firearm greats, including Smith, Wesson, and Winchester. To learn more about Henry, read Sam’s article at Ammo.com’s Resistance Library.
