Can anyone help identify this old girl?

I found what appears to be a date on the receiver aug 25 1868 also has 34 stamped in three places the butt stock under the plate under the barrels and the bottom of the receiver it is a muzzleloader no other markings to be found can’t get the barrels off the see if anything is on the end as the screw is rusted tight and haven’t had the time to really try to get it loose

As was previously advised, soak the screw with Liquid Wrench or any other good penetrating oil for several days. Then place a screwdriver in the slot and sharply tap the screwdriver into the screw a couple times. Then soak again and repeat the tapping. When tapping then, try to turn the screw a little, then stop and go through the soaking and tapping. Soon the screw will unscrew all the way out. Don't try to turn the screwdriver to hard. You can easily twist off the head of the screw.
