A park volunteer reported the theft of a personally-owned firearm stored in his tent during the park’s Mexican War encampment on Saturday, June 3rd.  The weapon is described as being an original 1857 Belgian-made French Civil War-style pin fire 7mm revolver with a fully engraved blued finish and checkered walnut grips. The gun has a folding trigger and Lege proof marks. There is no serial number. The firearm was taken from a locked trunk.  The keys to the trunk had been left in a desk drawer in the tent. The owner valued the weapon at between $600 and $1,000.
