JUST ADDED ON 12/4 - THE BATTLE OF SPOTSYLVANIA - Very Nice Pulled/Misfired Enfield Bullet with Intact Wood Plug
Out of stock
It is difficult to find an Enfield bullet with a wood plug still in the cavity, but to find one that has also been pulled from the barrel by a soldier because it misfired is rare. This example was recovered at the site of the Battle of Spotsylvania. The Battle of Spotsylvania Court House, fought from May 8th to May 21st, 1864, was the second major battle of Grant’s Overland Campaign. After the Battle of the Wilderness, the two armies raced to control the important junction at Spotsylvania.Lee’s Army arrived first and entrenched, forcing Grant to attack over the course of several days – the cost was another 31,000 combined casualties. A provenance letter will be included.
