NEW ITEMS WERE ADDED ON DECEMBER 4TH – ARTIFACTS FROM GETTYSBURG, ANTIETAM, CRAMPTON’S GAP, SHILOH, MONOCACY, SPOTSYLVANIA, TREVILIAN STATION AND RINGGOLD GAP!

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
Battery Robinett, a famous Civil War location in Northern Mississippi, is a rare place to get artifacts from. I have actually never had any before now. These relics, a fired pistol ball and five pieces of camp lead (often excess lead from the process of making bullets), were recovered in 1979 before the area where the fort is located became a historical site / park. Battery Robinett was one of the forts built by the Union Army in 1862 after it occupied Corinth. It was the scene of a most intense fighting of the siege of Corinth when Confederates attacked the location, hand to hand fighting ensued before the Confederates were forced to retreat. A famous early war photo of dead Confederate soldiers in front of the fort was taken here. A provenance letter will be included.
