The Lauck brothers of the 1700's reportedly marched with Daniel Morgan's riflemen to join with General Washington during the revolutionary period in United States history. The Laucks were reportedly involved in the relief of Boston and the siege of Quebec as members of Captain Morgan's riflemen. The Laucks later rejoined Morgan as he organized the 11th and 15th Virginia Regiments.

From this point in history, the gunsmithing tradition and training was further passed on to Lauck sons. The Lauck sons continued custom gunsmithing and barrel making occupations through the 1800's.
