70+ yo. Had a greatgrandfather in the civil war. In the translated text you missed something. It stared to collect arms for updating and return to company and to make sure to get receipts. Most militia kept their firearms at home. Not every area had organized armories. Makes sense to me. Converting old flintlocks to percussion makes the weapon more dependable but a little faster to reload. Stop a think when did the war start and end. The order is dated 1861, was it not?
