original Colt Navy Revolver holster was loaned to Dells for
"patterning & reproduction" purposes by John Petersen
of Poughquag, NY. John's Grandfather, Maurice Petersen acquired this
and several other pieces from a descendant of Thomas Britton, the
officer who owned the items. Capt. Britton served with the Army from
1847-1873, a career man, and has quite an interesting history. For
