Why We Love Guns - In One Photo

Breaking the bonds of economic enslavement in the industrial German Ruhr for the wilds of an Illinois homestead, in-law Philip Schoenholz was so happy he included his new bird gun and hunting pouch in this ca1860 portrait. Because unless you were a rural Forstmeister, only aristocrats owned guns and hunted game in Germany then, and from his matted hair, his winded look, and the facial expression of his other love, Elizabetha, he had to be dragged in from the fields by his adult sons for the portrait. ;)
