Slings in the American Civil War?
Jul 10th, 2024 at 9:25pm
 
Does anyone know of any accounts where someone might have used a sling in combat?

Thank you

I wouldn't say it's impossible, but I would find it pretty surprising.  Firearms were certainly well established by that time. 

Did the thought of a sling being used come from something you heard, or just a curiosity?
