JUST ADDED ON 10/13 - THE BATTLE OF GLENDALE - 2 .69 Caliber Bullets - Found in 1968 - with ORIGINAL COLLECTION LABEL
Two .69 caliber bullets, including one that is fired and one that looks like it was pounded (perhaps to make a poker chip), that were recovered at Glendale in April, 1968. They were in a large Pennsylvania collection of carefully identified relics that were recovered in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. This group includes the collector's original typed label. The Battle of Glendale or Frayser's Farm took place on June 30th, 1862 - the sixth day of the famous Seven Days Battles. Although it is not as well known as Malvern Hill or Gaines' Mill, the battle was intense, involving over 80,000 troops and almost 7500 combined casualties. I will include a provenance letter.
