This brass trigger guard was recovered during excavations in 2014 of the Adair cabin site, home of Reverend Samuel and Florella Brown Adair and their family, in Osawatomie, Kansas. Osawatomie and the Adairs were much involved with the abolitionist movement during the "Bleeding Kansas" years. Trigger guards are meant to surround the trigger and protect it from accidental discharge.

Date: 1855-1912
