JUST ADDED ON 8/8 - GETTYSBURG - CULP'S HILL - Fired Bullet - Possible Soft Tissue Impact

Out of stock
Product Details

The "soft" mushrooming on the nose of this fired bullet makes me suspect that it is a soft tissue impact - meaning that it passed through something like cloth, leather or flesh. It was recovered in the Culp's Hill area many years ago by a Gettysburg area man. Culp's Hill, although overshadowed today by the battle on the Union left on July 2nd and by Pickett's Charge on July 3rd, saw intense fighting, particularly on the morning of July 3rd. It could easily be argued that the fighting here was, perhaps, the key to the entire battle. A provenance letter will be included.
