JUST ADDED ON 5/2 - THE BATTLE OF CEDAR CREEK - Breech Plug from the Barrel of an Enfield Musket
This breech plug from the barrel of an Enfield musket was recovered from the Cedar Creek battlefield. This relic comes from the Collection of Wilbur Bedall, a thirty year relic hunter who amassed a large collection of artifacts and carefully recorded the location of recovery for the items that he found. The Battle of Cedar Creek, a very important 1864 engagement that was fought close to Winchester, VA. is known to history for the famous ride made by General Sheridan in an effort to rally his army after a surprise Confederate attack. A provenance letter will be included.
