JUST ADDED ON 5/20 - THE BATTLE OF SHILOH / MORNING ATTACK / AREA OF OVERRUN CAMPS ON THE UNION LEFT - Fired .69 Caliber Bullet - Possible Ram Rod Mark on the Nose
This is a rare instance where a Shiloh artifact has a specific location provenance - most of the relics I have had are just identified as Shiloh. This fired .69 caliber bullet, which appears to have a ram rod mark on the nose, was recovered in the area where the Confederate attacked the Union camps on the left on the morning of April 6th in the area of Spain Branch (private property at the time, with permission). This is the general area where Hurlbut's Division was located. A provenance letter will be included.
