MARCH 24TH/25TH – TWENTY-ONE ARTIFACTS WERE ADDED TO THE CATALOG, INCLUDING RELICS FROM EXCELSIOR FIELD IN GETTYSBURG, MILLER’S CORNFIELD AND DUNKER CHURCH IN ANTIETAM, CHANCELLORSVILLE AND MALVERN HILL!

It is all about the provenance!  When I began collecting Civil War artifacts back when I was a child, I was always much more interested in the recovery location of an artifact than the rarity or value of the artifact itself.  As a historian, I have made every effort to acquire artifacts with solid provenance.  The intent of this website is to offer Civil War relics with a historical connection so that the collector can feel secure in the knowledge that they are getting something from a specific event or place.  Each item includes a provenance letter with all of the details that I know about the piece.

Product Details

Two .69 caliber round balls (one has a small sprue) that were recovered from a Confederate camp near Leesburg, Virginia (although some of the artifacts clearly appear to have been battle related). They come from the collection of a Maryland relic hunter who stored everything that he found in small cardboard boxes that were carefully labeled with the location where they came from. The Battle of Ball's Bluff was fought near Leesburg and some of the artifacts in the box were clearly battle related, so I suspect that this site might have been near where the battle was fought. This is the first time that this relic has been offered to the public for sale having come fresh out of the relic hunter's estate. A provenance letter with the relic hunters name will be included.
