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

A heavy link from an iron chain (4 5/8 x 2 1/4 inches (weighs over 9 ounces)) that was recovered in the East Woods/Miller's Cornfield area on February 4, 1968. This comes from the collection of a Maryland relic hunter who kept everything that he found on each hunt in small identified cardboard boxes. There is, of course, no way of determining if this artifact is connected to the battle, but considering how heavy it is, I think that there is definitely a possibility that it was from something connected to the artillery or perhaps a supply wagon. A provenance letter will be included.
