Home : "The Guns of the Revenant"
Hugh Glass was an American frontiersman, fur trapper, fur trader, hunter, and explorer. Born in Pennsylvania to Scotch-Irish parents, Glass became an explorer of the watershed of the Upper Missouri River, in present-day Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, and the Platte River area of Nebraska. Glass is best known for his story of survival and retribution, after being left for dead by companions, following his mauling by a grizzly bear. Not unlike the experience of his fellow mountain men, Jedediah Smith and Grizzly Adams, they all lived to tell the tale of their near death bear attacks.
The legend of Hugh Glass is reborn in the 2016 movie "The Revenant". The Producers and Directors of the movie went to great pains to make sure the clothing, camp gear, firearms and accoutrements were historically correct.
Some of the fire arms used in "The Revenant" were supplied by Davide Pedersoli and Co. and available through Jedediah Starr Trading Co.
