"One Tennessee Rifle: Three Stories"
Presented by Randal Pierce

With special permission of the owners, Randal Pierce will present an early Baxter Bean rifle that the family has treasured since it was first built.  This rifle and its accouterments have never before even been pictured in any detail.  Randal will provide the latest research about Baxter Bean and will relate the fascinating history of the rifle's ownership and use in Cades Cove, now a part of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
