Steel bayonet for U.S. rifle-musket model 1855-1870. This steel bayonet was transferred to the Kansas Historical Society from the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) headquarters, located in Memorial Hall in downtown Topeka, Kansas, from 1914 until the early 1960s. The GAR eventually passed out of existence along with the last Union army veteran, and the objects from its museum were absorbed into the collections of the Kansas Historical Society.

Date: between 1855 and 1870
