Preserving the History of Civil War Artifacts for the Collector!!!

LittleRoundTopMonumentcorrected-2-2.jpg

Since I began collecting Civil War relics as a young boy, I have always been interested in the provenance of the items that I purchased.  Where an item was found, when it was found or who owned it have always been vital to my collecting interest.  In my many years of collecting, I have taken great care to make sure that my relics had a proper ID and I try to identify all of the relics that I sell by location provenance. You can find a large selection of my relics and other Civil War items at the Antique Center of Gettysburg, so stop by and take a look - now in four cases - #51, #52, #63 & 64!!!!  There are always many things in my cases that are not on the website! This site is usually updated with new items on Monday morning.

 My book Living Gettysburg: A Journey on Hallowed Ground is now available on Amazon.com at this link - Living Gettysburg .  Some parts of the book are about relic hunting and collecting, but most of the memoir focuses on the experiences that I have had on the Gettysburg Battlefield during the course of my lifetime.  From the first time that I visited as a child, I have always known that Gettysburg was a special place.  This book is about my connection to the town and battlefield and the impact that both have had upon me.  It is through the echoes of the past and the power of historic memory that permeate the fields, hills, trees and houses that I have found meaning, joy and peace.
