That's an example of Americans' general ignorance of history.

What is wrong with it?

That looks like a model 1876 to me. Is there something wrong?

Oh, hold on. I read the caption. Battle of Gettysburg, huh? That would have been a neat trick.

Oh, that's rich!:rolleyes: I suppose that means Custer was wiped out by Sioux armed with Maxims, right?

Hmmmmm

Seems to me the "Civil War" ended at least 10 years before 1876, if I recall a couple of history clases correctly.......

If you look more closely you'll see this is a fake website, built as a demonstration for another company. Everything on it is fake.

Ah, I see. I was wondering why the Winchester rifle was apparently in the category "Sports Equipment/Baseball."
