JUST ADDED ON 5/29 - ANTIETAM / BURNSIDE'S BRIDGE - Fired "Washington Arsenal" Bullet - Soft Tissue Impact

Out of stock
Product Details

A fired bullet with star in the cavity (sometimes called a "Washington Arsenal" bullet) that appears to be a soft tissue impact - meaning that it passed through something like leather, cloth or flesh. It 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). I just acquired this bullet last year directly from the relic hunter who found it, so it is the first time that it is being offered for sale. A provenance letter will be included.
