It is unknown how it came to be in the islander's possession. The weapon was captured in March 1906 during a fight on Bud-Dajo in Jolo by U. S. troops under the command of Capt. B. H. Dorcy, 13th US Cavalry. It is believed that the rifle/musket was used during the Civil War by a Georgia infantryman and afterwards, sold and shipped to China, from where it was sold to some tribe in the Philippine Islands. Capt. Dorcy was a relative of Randolph Holladay."|
