Hi Everyone,

I posted this on another forum but thought I would also post here to get a wider coverage.

I am requesting information regarding the use of the gatling gun during the war. Many sites and books state the gatling gun was used during the the American Civil War. I understand General Butler purchased some before the Bermuda 100 campaign, and that the gun was adopted by the US Army in 1866, one year after the war ended but I have never come across any references to it actually being used during the war.

Has anyone come across any instances of it being used, and the source of the information?

Any replies would be much appreciated. I have had one reply from the other forum which accords with my understanding

Best wishes (from a very hot Australia)
Chris
