MARCH 24TH/25TH – TWENTY-ONE ARTIFACTS WERE ADDED TO THE CATALOG, INCLUDING RELICS FROM EXCELSIOR FIELD IN GETTYSBURG, MILLER’S CORNFIELD AND DUNKER CHURCH IN ANTIETAM, CHANCELLORSVILLE AND MALVERN HILL!

It is all about the provenance!  When I began collecting Civil War artifacts back when I was a child, I was always much more interested in the recovery location of an artifact than the rarity or value of the artifact itself.  As a historian, I have made every effort to acquire artifacts with solid provenance.  The intent of this website is to offer Civil War relics with a historical connection so that the collector can feel secure in the knowledge that they are getting something from a specific event or place.  Each item includes a provenance letter with all of the details that I know about the piece.

Product Details

The remains of a large pocket knife (4.5 inches long) that was recovered from a trash pit that was located in the 1862-1863 winter camp of Berdan's Sharpshooters in Stafford, Virginia. Berdan's Sharpshooters, the First and Second Regiment of United States Sharpshooters, were two of the most famous regiments in the Union Army. Equipped with Sharps Rifles and dressed in green uniforms, they played an important role in many of the battles fought by the Army of the Potomac. A provenance letter will be included.
