- we hunt the dead

Samuel Colt
July 19, 1814 – January 10, 1862
Cedar Hill Cemetery - Hartford, CT


Samuel Colt founded the Colt Firearms Company and invented the Colt Revolver - the world's first revolving gun.  The Colt Revolver is still in use today and was the first gun ever manufactured with fully interchangable parts.



The Colt monument is HUGE.  And by huge, we mean fricken big!  We didn't need any help finding this one, unlike the nearly-hidden grave of Katharine Hepburn, also located here in Cedar Hill.



Factoid: At one point, Samuel Colt produced firearms in a factory owned by Eli Whitney.
