JUST ADDED ON 12/10 - THE BATTLE OF SHILOH - Soldier Manipulated Bullet with Flatten Skirt - recovered 1974
Out of stock
The bottom of this bullet is flattened out - but it is too even to have been the result of impact so the soldier must have pounded it that way. It was recovered at the site of the Battle of Shiloh in June of 1974. This artifact comes out of the collection of William Reger who lived in Berks County, Pennsylvania and relic hunted at a variety of sites from the late 1950s to the mid 1970s. Reger carefully identified his artifacts with typed labels. The Battle of Shiloh was the first major battle in the Western Theater. The battle was fierce and the casualties were very high, but ultimately the Union Army emerged victorious under the leadership of General Ulysses S. Grant. A provenance letter will be included.
