JUST ADDED ON 1/12 - THE BATTLE / SIEGE OF YORKTOWN - Confederate Gardner Bullet
A dropped .58 caliber Confederate Gardner bullet (the side of this one is just a little flattened) that was recovered from the site of the Civil War Siege / Battle of Yorktown. A small force under Confederate John Magruder occupied the Revolutionary War trenches at Yorktown and was able to delay the advance of General George McClellan's much larger army during the first stages of the 1862 Peninsula Campaign. The siege lasted from April 5th to May 4th. A provenance letter will be included.
