True origin of assembly line

Firearms. Yes, guns. An extremely important part of America and her history.
Guns were originally built one at a time by craftsmen (a/k/a gunsmiths). But parts were not interchangeable, and lesser-skilled individuals were available in abundance, etc.
In any event, my studies indicate that the first uses of the assembly line and standardization in the U.S. manufacturing arena was firearm production. I think Samuel Colt may have been the earliest to go this route.
