JUST ADDED ON 11/16 - GETTYSBURG - CULP'S HILL - Soft Tissue Impact Type I William's Cleaner Bullet
This fired Type I William's Cleaner bullet has what is sometimes referred to as soft tissue damage - the lead has peeled back from the impact rather than splattering outward as it would have done if it hit something hard (like a rock). It was recovered in the Culp's Hill area many years ago by a Gettysburg area man. Culp's Hill, although overshadowed today by the battle on the Union left on July 2nd and by Pickett's Charge on July 3rd, saw intense fighting, particularly on the morning of July 3rd. It could easily be argued that the fighting here was, perhaps, the key to the entire battle. A provenance letter will be included.
