London Armoury Company (Manufacturer)
The London Armoury Company was founded on 9 February 1856 by John and Robert Adams and John Kerr. In 1861, Captain Caleb Huse was sent to Europe to procure arms for the Confederacy. By March 1862, he had an exclusive contract to purchase all arms produced by the London Armoury Company. The London Armoury was so dependent on their business with the Southern army that it suffered the same fate as the Confederate States. By the spring of 1866, the London Armoury Company was dissolved.
