Transcript of Weaponry in Colonial Times and Modern Times

By: Nicole and Brian Weaponry of Colonial and Modern Times Bows and Arrows were the main weapon of mass production in the 1500's. As a war instrument the bow and arrow dates back to the Paleolithic era the European and Asia areas including Egypt.
The way that they made Bows and Arrows in colonial times was by charring it and honing it with a rock until it is at a point. The burning and charring made the point harder than the wood origionally was. The advantages of using bows and arrows in colonial times were that bows and arrows were very accurate as long as you knew how to aim.

By: Nicole The Flintlock Pistols was mostly use for pirating but is was use to conduct rads on the Native Americans. To load the Pistol you must insert the gun powder in the barrel. Then they wraped the lead ball in a fabric and then they push the lead ball into the gun powder. Then you pull back the hammer and squeezes the trigger and the hammer strikes the frizzen and then the gun fires. It takes experts 15 seconds to reload a flintlock pistol. the flintlock pistol was made in France. the Pistol weights 5lbs. Pistols in Colonial Bows and Arrows have always been used or a strong and powerful weapon ever since the Palaeolithical Period of Time. Since then the bow and arrow havwe progressed greatly. They are no made out of wood anymore, they are now made of plastic. They are now made of plastic because it is a stronger material.

Brian's work sited The bow and arrow started in the Paleolithical Period where it was made out of wood. They are no longer made out of wood because they disovered that a stronger material to use would be plastic. They switched to plastic because it is more accurate.
The bows and arrows were used ALOT in Colonial Times! They used them for many wars such as the revolutionary war and the Civil War. Over time after they came up with the plastic and wooden bows they created a compound bow. This was good for people who use different hands to shoot and aim. The bow and arrow has grown over time and has had many different stages.
