About this Artefact by: Waterloo 200 Coordinator

Date added: 12 Mar 2015

This British rifle, named after its maker, Ezekial Baker, was one of the most advanced weapons in the world at the time of the Battle of Waterloo. It was much more accurate than the guns used by most soldiers, but also harder and more expensive to make.
