JUST ADDED ON 11/13 - ANTIETAM / BURNSIDE'S BRIDGE - Bullet with Teeth Marks

Out of stock
Product Details

A bullet with teeth marks that was recovered in the 1980s (private property at the time) on the west side of Burnside Bridge in the area where the Confederates struck the Union line during their advance after crossing the bridge (a photo of a map has been included in the gallery to show the location). Although it is often claimed that these are pain or hospital bullets, it is much more likely that it was chewed by an animal at some point after the battle. I acquired this bullet directly from the relic hunter who found it about ten years ago. A provenance letter will be included.
