At the Battle of South Mountain on September 14,1862,Union forces took a large number of prisoners. The colonel of one of the New Jersey regiments told his men to stack their smoothbores and take the Enfields they had just captured, one solider wrote home that "we upgraded our armaments at no cost to Uncle Sam." The Union took about 30,000 small arms in the Fall of Vicksburg.
