The history of Tennessee, Kentucky, and certainly the history of the United States is connected with the history of this rifle. Designed to be well-balanced, slender and graceful, the Kentucky flintlock-hunting rifle was more accurate than any known previous shoulder-fired weapon became famous as the first American made rifle. Created in the 1730s in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, by skillful immigrant craftsmen from Germany and Switzerland, the Kentucky rifle was the supreme implement created as a state of the art, ultimately for over a century, until the coming of the "cap and ball" percussion rifle in 1840.
