“Seen The Glory” final cover
This is the final approved version of the cover discussed in the December 9, 2008 post. Below are the various solutions proposed previously. The author pointed out that I had placed the gun on the wrong shoulder, and also that the hammer mechanism on the musket was historically inaccurate (oh, you experts). With the author's helpful reference, I replaced the hammer, and we flopped the photo to get the gun on the proper shoulder (thus, I also had to place the hammer on the other side of the musket).
