JUST ADDED ON 12/4 - THE BATTLE OF ANTIETAM / THE PIPER FARM - Brass Relic Group - Watch Cover, Pocket Knife Piece, Burnside Casing
Four brass relics (technically five, as the watch cover is in two pieces) that were found in the 1950s on the Piper Farm at Antietam. The group includes two pieces of the same decorated watch cover, another piece of a watch cover, the end of a brass pocket knife and a crushed Burnside carbine bullet casing. The Piper Farm bordered the Sunken Road or Bloody Lane and the farmhouse served as Longstreet's Headquarters during the battle. I will include a letter of provenance.
