Boswell Minie' Ball Pipe - inspired by the minie' bullet. J.M. has been creating Minie Ball pipes since 2001.
A French Captain Claude Minie' came up with the new solution of a bullet that expanded after it was loaded. The minie' bullet changed the face of warfare forever. For the first time in history, infantrymen could aim their weapons at a target a fair distance and actually have a chance of hitting their target. During the Civil War between the North and South, the Minie'Ball Bullet was a major cause of so many casualties.
This past November marked the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg address. To see our collections of Civil War era pipe smokers, clickHERE.
