That's really cool. It's definitely true that history repeats itself in regards to hiding those firearms and the idea and political climate behind it at the time.
Would love to see the pics!
If you're going to carry one weapon, might as well carry two, because as the saying goes, "Two is one, and one is none."

I doubt anyone just forgot they were there. Owner possibly died (in battle?). Seems like the Revolution would be a time to get your arms out, not hide them. Maybe they were used in the war, then put away for another time, or supplanted when more modern arms came along.

If I ever found anything like that, I'd keep them. I love old flintlocks.
