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

This .69 caliber round ball or large case shot from an artillery shell was found in the Poffenberger Woods at Antietam in August 1956. It originally came from the Wentworth Military Academy Collection. A large collection of dug relics, most with labels or in boxes indicating their recovery location and date (apparently put there by the unknown digger), which was originally held by the academy (located in Missouri), was sold at auction in the summer of 2008. The Poffenberger Farm played an important role in the battle. I will include a letter with the specific provenance.
