JUST ADDED ON 1/22 - THE BATTLE OF ANTIETAM / DUNKER CHURCH - Soldier's Ring?
This brass ring is very thin, but I have seen thin men's rings before, so it might be a soldier's ring. It was recovered close to the Dunker Church at Antietam in the 1960s. The Dunker Church is, perhaps, the most famous building on the Antietam battlefield and was at the heart of the morning's fight. I acquired this artifact more than a decade ago, but it has been stored away until "rediscovered" this past summer. A provenance letter will be included.
