The Man Behind the Gun

Samuel Colt and His Revolver

Series: Genius at Work! Great Inventor Biographies

By Edwin Brit Wyckoff

Until the late nineteenth century, guns took a long time to load and could only make one shot at a time. But Samuel Colt invented a hand gun that held six bullets and could be fired without reloading every time. This changed weaponry forever.
