JUST ADDED ON 5/20 - THE BATTLE OF SPOTSYLVANIA / LAUREL HILL/MARYLAND MONUMENT - Four .58 Caliber Bullets Including a Swage & CS with Original Collector's Typed Label
Four .58 caliber bullets, including a fired Swage and a variation that appears to be Confederate, that were found near the Maryland brigade monument in the Laurel Hill area of the battlefield of Spotsylvania probably in the early 1960s. These bullets were in a large Pennsylvania collection of carefully identified relics that were recovered in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. The monument was erected about forty years after the battle to mark the farthest point that the Marylanders reached during a futile charge. The collector's original identification label as well as a provenance letter will be included with the bullets.
