Rare Vintage Antique Scrimshaw Powder Horn Map of Colonial AmericaThe horn was acquired at an Estate Sale. While doing research on this Powder Horn I came across an article from the Library of Congress entitled -
Powder Horn Maps of Colonial America" dated September 26, 2017 by Julie Stoner.The article states in part " Powder horns were made from cow or ox horn and used for carrying gunpowder. Embellishing these animal horns with maps was a popular activity with frontiersmen and with soldiers serving in British Colonial America, especially during the French and Indian War (1754 – 1763) and the American Revolutionary War (1775 – 1783)." I do not know the history behind the Powder Horn which I have listed. Pictures in the article appear to depict the  same route of the Hudson River from Lake Ontario to Albany, NY, several forts, points of interest along the route as well as what appears to be the British Coat of Arms that are inscribed on the horn.  I took this horn to the antique store in Carson City, Nevada to see if I could validate its authenticity. The owner proprietor said he could not rule out its authenticity, but thought the blue spring steel was not period appropriate. He suggested I take it to the Militaria store in town as he thought that guy was more knowledgeable on items like this. Next stop was the militaria store. This guy said the spring steel is period appropriate. He said there were a couple things on the map that he questioned, but felt it was probably authentic.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or if you would like additional photos.
