Diagram of a Royal Navy 3rd rate ship of the line from the Cyclopaedia, Vol 2 (which was published in 1728). The Cyclopaedia was one of the very first encyclopedias to ever be published and was immensely popular throughout the 18th century—George Washington is known to have had an edition of it at Mt. Vernon for example.
(I’ve previously blogged about the Cyclopaedia here.)

These are known as the Pitcairn/Putnam pistols. According to family tradition, during the fighting on April 19, 1775, Major Pitcairn lost control of his horse which bolted with his saddle bags and a fine pair of pistols. The horse was recovered and the pistols were given to Major Israel Putnam. In 1879 they were donated to the town of Lexington.
It’s highly unlikely that these pistols actually belonged to Pitcairn though. For one thing the heraldic crest on the pistols belong to the Crosbie family, and Captain William Crosbie was listed among the wounded that day. 
Lots of stories got attached to Pitcairn because he was in command of the men on Lexington that day, so he was someone that New Englanders loved to hate. 
They’re still a beautiful pair of pistols with important historical importance because of their connection to the fighting on April 19, 1775, to Israel Putnam, and to the Revolutionary War.

"'Well, sir', she said, 'just as a mother rejoices when she notices her baby smile for the firt time, so does God rejoice every time he beholds from on high a sinner kneeling before him, praying with all his heart.' This was what a simple peasant woman told me, in practically those words —a thought so profound, so subtle, so truely religious, comprehending the whole essence of Christianity, that is, the whole concept of God as our Father and our God rejiicing in man, like a father rejoicing in his child —the fundamental idea of Christ!"
