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 is a very rare Gettysburg artifact as the only six-pounder cannon at Gettysburg was in the Confederate Latham's Battery which was part of Longstreet's Corps. The battery was positioned on the far right of Longstreet's line on July 2nd and records indicate that it fired in both the direction of the Peach Orchard and Devil's Den. This solid shot was originally sold by the Union Drummer Boy in Gettysburg (the original provenance letter is included) and was provenanced to the Jennie Wade Museum. It is clearly an early recovery as the pitting is very limited. The collector who I acquired this from (who purchased it from the Union Drummer Boy) said that it was recovered at the Peach Orchard (his collection label is included and is shown in one photograph) although this is not listed in the letter. This is a very rare Gettysburg artifact, so don't miss out. I will include my own provenance letter (along with the original letter). The shipping charge of $20.00 will include insurance.
