12lb Solid Cannonball from Cemetery Hill
* 12lb. Solid Cannonball - Cemetery Hill - Union Staging Area, Confederate Target On July 2, 1863 -

Confederate General Robert E. Lee ordered attacks on both ends of the Union line. Lt. Gen. James Longstreet attacked with his First Corps on the Union left (Little Round Top, Devil's Den, Wheatfield). Lt. Gen. Richard S. Ewell and the Second Corps were assigned the mission of launching a simultaneous demonstration against the Union right, a minor attack that was intended to distract and pin down the Union defenders against Longstreet. Ewell was to exploit any success his demonstration might achieve by following up with a full-scale attack at his discretion.

Ewell began his demonstration at 4 p.m. upon hearing the sound of Longstreet's guns to the south. For three hours, he chose to limit his demonstration to an artillery barrage from Benner's Hill, about a mile (1,600 m) to the northeast. Although the Union defenders on Cemetery Hill received some damage from this fire, they returned counterbattery fire with a vengeance. Cemetery Hill is over 50 feet taller than Benner's Hill, and the geometry of artillery science meant that the Union gunners had a decided advantage. Ewell's four batteries were forced to withdraw with heavy losses, and his best artillerist, 19-year-old Joseph W. Latimer, the "Boy Major", was mortally wounded.

This cannonball is from the estate of George Olinger, former Head of The Historic Society of Gettysbrg for 35+ years. George was also a liscenced Gettysburg Battlefield Guide. The cannonball is an early recovery from Cemetery Hill and is in good dug condition. George oversaw the management of the huge collection of Civil War artifacts a massed by the Historic Society as well as his own personal collection. This cannonbal is as was dug and has not beem painted or clear coated with any chemicals. It as was recovered....right from the ground.

Exceptional cannonball with COA, documentation laminated on parchment paper for preservation and includes a display stand. Documentation includes an image of the actual cannonball on the provenance. Shipped Priority Mail, insured with delivery confirmation/tracking number.

6 Lb. Confederate Cannonball from the Battle of Gettysburg
* Rarest Confederate Cannonball from the Battle of Gettysburg -

There was only one 6 pound Cannon at Gettysburg and that was in Latham's Battery under Longstreet's Army of Northern Virginia. All 6 pound cannon balls at Gettysburg were recovered in the Area of Plum Run, The Little Round Top and Devil's Den. This is the only place on the Gettysburg Battlefield that 6 pound cannon balls have ever been recovered.

"The 6-pounder field gun was virtually obsolete at the beginning of the War because of the development of the much superior Napoleon and 3-inch rifles. The Confederate States ordered that they be melted down to make other weapons, and in Federal service they were modified by rifling the barrels. At Gettysburg, there was only one of these guns on the field, that in Alexander Latham's battery in James Longstreet's I Corps, Army of Northern Virginia. Field guns fired solid shot, explosive 6 lb., Bormann, artillery shells, spherical case, and canister". (National Park Service)

This rare 6 lb. Confederate cannonball was recently acquired from a local Gettysburg Civil War collector in a trade for Shield's Museum collection artifacts. This is a Museum quality Confederate cannonball and I have been very lucky to find this rare cannonball. For me collecting and documenting Gettysburg relics or artifacts is a way of remembering and honoring those that paid the ultimate sacrifice.

Comes with signed COA laminated on parchment paper and a map of recovery area.

Complete Dug Eagle Breast Plate - Peach Orchard Recovery
* Complete Dug Eagle Breast Plate - Peach Orchard Recovery

Before the Civil War, Gettysburg was best known for its orchards of delicious fruit. One Gettysburg peach orchard at the intersection of Wheatfield road and Emmitsburg road became the scene for a confrontation between Longsteet's Confederate troops and Sickles' Union troops. It was the scene of intense fighting on july 2, 1863 from approximately 4pm to 6:30pm.

After a short delay to assemble his forces and avoid detection in his approach march, Lt. Gen. James Longstreet attacked with his First Corps against the Union left flank. His division under Maj. Gen. John Bell Hood attacked Little Round Top and Devil's Den. To Hood's left, Maj. Gen. Lafayette McLaws attacked the Wheatfield and the Peach Orchard. Although neither prevailed, the Union III Corps was effectively destroyed as a combat organization as it attempted to defend a salient over too wide a front. Gen. Meade rushed as many as 20,000 reinforcements from elsewhere in his line to resist these fierce assaults. The attacks in this sector concluded with an unsuccessful assault by the Third Corps division of Maj. Gen. Richard H. Anderson against the Union center on Cemetery Ridge.

Purchased from local Gettysburg relic hunter/collector. This Breastplate has a wonderful patina and both iron loops for attachment are present. Comes with COA.

12lb. Bormann found over Cemetery Ridge
* 12lb. Bormann found over Cemetery Ridge

12lb. Bormann found over Cemetery Ridge, just east of Meade's original Headquarters. This was probably an over shot by Confederates and the fuse was knocked off and the round never detonated. This cannonball is from my personal collection of Gettysburg artifacts.

"The July 3 bombardment was likely the largest of the war,[13] with hundreds of cannons from both sides firing along the lines for one to two hours,[14] starting around 1 p.m. Confederate guns numbered between 150 and 170[15] and fired from a line over two miles (3 km) long, starting in the south at the Peach Orchard and running roughly parallel to the Emmitsburg Road. Confederate Brig. Gen. Evander M. Law wrote, "The cannonade in the center ... presented one of the most magnificent battle-scenes witnessed during the war. Looking up the valley towards Gettysburg, the hills on either side were capped with crowns of flame and smoke, as 300 guns, about equally divided between the two ridges, vomited their iron hail upon each other."

Despite its ferocity, the fire was mostly ineffectual. Confederate shells often overshot the infantry front lines—in some cases because of inferior shell fuses that delayed detonation—and the smoke covering the battlefield concealed that fact from the gunners. Union artillery chief Brig. Gen. Henry J. Hunt had only about 80 guns available to conduct counter-battery fire; the geographic features of the Union line had limited areas for effective gun emplacement. He also ordered that firing cease to conserve ammunition, but to fool Alexander, Hunt ordered his cannons to cease fire slowly to create the illusion that they were being destroyed one by one. By the time all of Hunt's cannons ceased fire, and still blinded by the smoke from battle, Alexander fell for Hunt's illusion and interpreted this to mean that many of the batteries had been destroyed. Hunt had to resist the strong arguments of General Hancock, who demanded Union fire to lift the spirits of the infantrymen pinned down under Alexander's bombardment. Even Meade was affected by the artillery—the Leister house was a victim of frequent overshots, and he had to evacuate with his staff to Powers Hill." (Wikipedia, Pickett's Charge) Comes with COA on laminated parchment paper and map of recovery area.

US Dug Puppy Paw Buckle - Peach Orchard
* US Dug Puppy Paw Buckle - Peach Orchard

At 6:30pm, Longstreet's Corps ended the artillery duel and began the assault with a tremendous Rebel yell. Confederate Brigadier General William Barksdale advanced with his Mississippi brigade of 1,600 men, and on his right side, Brigadier General William Tatum Wofford led his Georgia brigade of 1,300 men. However, the 57th Pennsylvania and 114th Pennsylvania of Graham's brigade rushed across Emmitsburg Road before the Confederates reached it. They tried to gain a hold around farmer Joseph Sherfy's house, owner of the orchard, but there were many casualties and Confederates soon crossed the Peach Orchard.

Enfield Model 1853 Butt Plate
* Enfield Model 1853 Butt Plate

The Enfield 1853 rifle-musket was used by both the North and the South in the American Civil War, and was the second most widely used infantry weapon in the war, surpassed only by the Springfield Model 1861 Rifled Musket. The Confederates imported more Enfields during the course of the war than any other small arm, buying from private contractors and gun runners. It has been estimated that over 900,000 P53 Enfields were imported to America and saw service in every major engagement from the Battle of Shiloh (April, 1862) and the Siege of Vicksburg (May 1863), to the final battles of 1865.

This butt plate has a nice patina and is suitable as a part for Model 1853 restorations. It was acquired from a collector of Gettysburg arms and comes with a COA on laminated parchment paper.

Dug Little Round Top Us Cartridge Box Plate
* Little Round Top US Cartridge Box Plate

On the second day of the Battle of Gettysburg, Union forces were recovering from initial defeats and hastily regrouping into defensive positions on a line of hills south of the town. Sensing the momentary vulnerability of the Union forces, the Confederates began an attack against the Union left flank. Sent to defend the southern slope of Little Round Top by Col. Strong Vincent, Chamberlain found himself and the 20th Maine at the far left end of the entire Union line. He quickly understood the strategic significance of the small hill, and the need for the 20th Maine to hold the Union left at all costs......

This rare cartridge box plate has a beautiful dark patina from the aging of brass. Both iron loops for attachment to ammunition/cartridge box are firmly intact and are not rusted away like most.

This US Cartridge box plate came from the collection of George Olinger, former Head of The Historic Society and a licensed Gettysburg Battlefield Guide.

US Buckle - Devil's Den - Slaughter Pen
* US Buckle - Devil's Den - Slaughter Pen

The Slaughter Pen can be found at the foot of the Little Round Top across from Devil's Den, a location that figured prominently in the second day of the Battle of Gettysburg, July 2, 1863. Devil's Den is a huge collection of randomly scattered boulder, gigantic and stacked up offering protection from Union troops on Little Round Top and an excellent piece of real estate for sharpshooters (called snipers today).

The broken ground of Devil’s Den lies in the angle between Plum Run and a small tributary branch. The steep eastern face becomes a ridge. Birney scrambled to find reinforcements. He sent the 40th New York and 6th New Jersey from the Wheatfield into Plum Run Valley to block the approach into Ward's flank. They collided with Benning's and Law's men in rocky, broken ground that the survivors would remember as the "Slaughter Pen". (Plum Run itself was known as "Bloody Run"; Plum Run Valley as the "Valley of Death".) Col. Thomas W. Egan, commanding the 40th New York, was called on by Smith to recover his guns. The men of the "Mozart" regiment slammed into the 2nd and 17th Georgia regiments, with initial success. As Ward's line along Houck's Ridge continued to collapse, the position manned by the 40th became increasingly untenable. However, Egan pressed his regiment onward, according to Col. Wesley Hodges of the 17th Georgia, launching seven attacks against the Confederate positions within the boulders of Slaughter Pen and Devil's Den. As the men of the 40th fell back under relentless pressure, the 6th New Jersey covered their withdrawal and lost a third of its men in the process.

All the attachments are firmly embedded in lead backing and this buckle has a wonderful patina. Comes with COA on laminated parchment paper.

Daniel Lady Farm/Hospital Morphine Bottle
* Daniel Lady Farm/Hospital Morphine Bottle

The Daniel Lady Farm, located at 986 Hanover Road Gettysburg, PA., was acquired in 1999 for restoration and preservation by the Gettysburg Battlefield Preservation Association.

On July 1, 1863, Union regiments in front of the house on Hanover Road were viewed as a threat to the left flank of the Army of Northern Virginia. Confederate Lt. Gen. Richard Ewell directed a division under Gen. Edward "Allegheny" Johnson to occupy the farm.

On July 2, as many as 10,000 thousand Confederates assembled just east of the farmhouse and assaulted Union positions on Culp's Hill. The troops included the legendary "Stonewall Brigade," now under Brig. Gen. James A. Walker; Jones' brigade; "Maryland" Steuarts' brigade; Nicholls' Louisiana Brigade. Colonel Snowden Andrews' Artillery Battalion also camped on the farm.

Union forces repelled the attack and the many wounded soldiers were taken back to the farm for treatment. The accounts of amputated limbs piled outside the windows of the home are not as shocking as the fact that the floors of the home have been proved to be stained by human blood through forensic examination. The walls of the farm's barn are to this day carved with the names and initials of soldiers who passed through there.

After the battles at Gettysburg the Daniel Lady Farm became part of the massive Camp Letterman Field Hospital. Notably for the first time in the war, the wounded and dying from both sides were treated there in a consolidated facility.

US Puppy-Paw Buckle from Culp's Hill
* US "Puppy-Paw" Buckle from Culp's Hill

On July 3, General Lee's plan was to renew his attacks by coordinating the action on Culp's Hill with another attack by Longstreet and A.P. Hill against Cemetery Ridge. Longstreet was not ready for an early attack, and the Union forces on Culp's Hill did not accommodate Lee by waiting. At dawn, five Union batteries opened fire on Steuart's brigade in the positions they had captured and kept them pinned down for 30 minutes before a planned attack by two of Geary's brigades. However, the Confederates beat them to the punch. An attempt by Lee to hold off the start of the fighting was fruitless. Ewell sent back a terse reply by messenger: "Too late to recall".

This rare "Puppy-Paw" buckle is in excellent condition with all attachments firmly embedded in the lead filled backing.

The US Buckle was purchased from the estate of George Olinger. George was the Head of The Historic Society of Gettysburg for 35+ years. George was an avid Gettysburg Civil War collector who would buy artifacts from estate sale and local diggers, collectors and collections at his antique shop.

Confederate Carbine Sash Buckle & Bat Wing
* Confederate Carbine Sash Buckle & "Bat Wing" - East Cavalry Field - Custer

Sling buckles were used to fasten as leather shoulder strap used to carry a carbine or a pouch.  This pattern is similar to the Regulation 1841 Federal sling buckles, the proportions are different, buckle is believed to have been manufactured in a small southern shop for Confederate cavalry use.  Construction is simple, the frame is cast or cut from sheet, the cross bar is brazed, and the flippers are cast or cut and bent around the cross bar. 

The battle started in earnest at approximately 1 p.m. July 3, 1863. At the same time that Col. Edward Porter Alexander's Confederate artillery barrage opened up on Cemetery Ridge. Fitz Lee's troopers came pouring through the farm of John Rummel, scattering the Union skirmish line.

Gregg ordered Custer to counterattack with the 7th Michigan. Custer personally led the regiment, shouting "Come on, you Wolverines!" Waves of horsemen collided in furious fighting along the fence line on Rummel's farm. Seven hundred men fought at point-blank range across the fence with carbines, pistols, and sabers. Custer's horse was shot out from under him, and he commandeered a bugler's horse. Eventually enough of Custer's men were amassed to break down the fence, and they caused the Virginians to retreat. Stuart sent in reinforcements from all three of his brigades: the 9th and 13th Virginia (Chambliss's Brigade), the 1st North Carolina and Jeff Davis Legion (Hampton's), and squadrons from the 2nd Virginia (Lee's). Custer's pursuit was broken, and the 7th Michigan fell back in a disorderly retreat.

I purchased this rare Confederate carbine sling and "batwings" at the Gettysburg Civil War Gun Show last fall. It was in a small collection of Custer related items and artifacts from East Cavalry Field. The Confederate carbine buckle and "batwings" have a dark rich patina from being dug prior to 1950 and were legally recovered.

Dug Musket Tool/Nipple Wrench and Bullet Worm
* Dug Musket Tool/Nipple Wrench and Bullet "Worm" - Extractor/Puller

Dug Musket Tool and Bullet "Worm" Puller - This is a unique pair of relics recovered on Battlefield property in the 1950's by a relic hunter along Seminary Ridge where Confederates gathered prior to Pickett's charge. If you were a lucky one you didn't loose your nipple wrench. These simple tools saved many a life. If your nipple clogged or fouled up, you had to clear the musket's nipple to allow a spark to ignite the gunpowder in your chamber so you could fire again. Also there's a bullet "worm" which was used to extract a bullet which was stuck in the barrel. Insufficient or wet powder could have been the reason your round did not completely leave the barrel however you had to remove it as fast as possible. Bullet extractors/worms/pullers... what ever name you prefer was a vital instrument for every soldier. These dug relics came from a collection I purchased from a local collector of authentic Gettysburg Civil War musket tools and bullet worm for sale.

Comes with COA on laminated parchment paper.

Rare Dug Eagle Breast Plate - Culp's Hill
* Rare Dug Eagle Breast Plate - Culp's Hill - Olinger Collection

On July 3, General Lee's plan was to renew his attacks by coordinating the action on Culp's Hill with another attack by Longstreet and A.P. Hill against Cemetery Ridge. Longstreet was not ready for an early attack, and the Union forces on Culp's Hill did not accommodate Lee by waiting.

Just after daybreak at 4:30 a.m. on July 3 Federal artillery fire from the south and west joined the punishing musketry from Union regiments dug in behind breastworks along the crest of the hill. As remembered by a soldier of the U.S. 1st Maryland: The whole hillside seemed enveloped in a blaze. Minnie balls pattered upon the breastworks like hailstones on a housetop. Solid shot went crashing through the woods, adding danger from falling limbs of trees to that of erratic fragments of exploding shells. The whole hill was covered with the smoke and smell of powder. No enemy could be seen. To expose oneself above the breastworks was certain death.  

The arrows on the Breast Plate signify the readiness to defend freedom by force and that the 3 arrows represent the 3 branches of the Federal Government - legislative, executive and judicial or the 3 branches of the Military - Army, Navy and Marines. Furthermore the Eagle's head pointing towards the olive branch signifies a preference for peace rather than war. Excellent addition to any collection, big or small. Comes with a signed COA laminated on parchment paper and a map of recovery area.

Dug Musket Hammer from Valley of Death near Little Round Top
* Dug Confederate Musket Hammer from Valley of Death near Little Round Top - What you see is what you get. This Confederate hammer is in dug condition and is well worn. It was purchased from a local collector. This rare Musket Hammer is an excellent addition to any Civil War collection and comes with a COA on laminated parchment paper.

Gen. Robert E. Lee concentrated his full strength against Maj. Gen. George G. Meade's Army of the Potomac at the crossroads county seat of Gettysburg. On July 1, Confederate forces converged on the town from west and North, driving Union defenders back through the streets to Cemetery Hill. During the night, reinforcements arrived for both sides. On July 2, Lee attempted to envelop the Federals, first striking the Union left flank at the Peach Orchard, Wheatfield, Devil's Den, and the Round Tops with Longstreet's and Hill's divisions, and then attacking the Union right at Culp's and East Cemetery Hills with Ewell's divisions. By evening,the Federals retained Little Round Top and had repulsed most of Ewell's men. During the morning of July 3, the Confederate infantry were driven from their last toe-hold on Culp's Hill. In the afternoon, after a preliminary artillery bombardment, Lee attacked the Union center on Cemetery Ridge. The Pickett-Pettigrew assault (more popularly, Pickett's Charge) momentarily pierced the Union line but was driven back with severe casualties. Stuart's cavalry attempted to gain the Union rear but was repulsed. On July 4, Lee began withdrawing his army toward Williamsport on the Potomac River. His train of wounded stretched more than fourteen miles.

Cartridge Box Plate from Oak Ridge
* RARE FIND - Cartridge Box Plate from Oak Ridge

The Confederate Second Corps under Lt. Gen. Richard S. Ewell began a massive assault from the north, with Maj. Gen. Robert E. Rodes's division attacking from Oak Hill and Maj. Gen. Jubal A. Early's division attacking across the open fields north of town. The Union lines generally held under extremely heavy pressure, although the salient at Barlow's Knoll was overrun.

The third phase of the battle came as Rodes renewed his assault from the north and Heth returned with his entire division from the west, accompanied by the division of Maj. Gen. W. Dorsey Pender. Heavy fighting in Herbst's Woods (near the Lutheran Theological Seminary) and on Oak Ridge finally caused the Union line to collapse. Some of the Federals conducted a fighting withdrawal through the town, suffering heavy casualties and losing many prisoners; others simply retreated.

This rare cartridge box plate was recovered on Oak Ridge. The plate came from the Olinger collection. The face is in very good condition and most of the lead backing is in tack. Comes with signed COA and map of recovery area laminated on parchment paper for preservation.

Cannon Artillery Fragment From Culp's Hill
* Cannon Artillery Fragment From Culp's Hill

As one Union soldier remembered, "The whole hillside seemed enveloped in a blaze. Minnie balls pattered upon the breastworks like hailstones on a housetop. Solid shot went crashing through the woods, adding the danger from falling limbs of trees to that from erratic fragments of exploding shells. The whole hill was covered with the smoke and smell of powder. No enemy could be seen. To expose oneself above the breastworks was certain death." When the battle ended a little before noon the Confederates were forced to give up ground that they had controlled for the first time in the battle.

During the Battle of Gettysburg, July 1–3, 1863, Culp's Hill was a critical part of the Union Army defensive line, the principal feature of the right flank, or "barbed" portion of what is described as the "fish-hook" line. Holding the hill was by itself unimportant because its heavily wooded sides made it unsuitable for artillery placement, but its loss would have been catastrophic to the Union army.

Rare Personal Dog Tag Or Charm
* Rare Personal "Dog Tag" Or Charm

This charm/tag was hand made by hammering a lead bullet flat then carefully carving the piece to its form to be worn around a soldiers neck. Personal relics/artifacts are especially prized by collectors as it provides a little insight into the soldiers mind set. This piece may have been an ID Tag or Dog Tag for identification should the soldier be killed and could not be identified. On a lighter note it may have been a good luck charm or love token. Regardless as to what it may have been fashioned for, it stands as a rare personal relic recovered in the "Valley of Death".

The official name of the creek running through the Valley of Death between Devils Den and Little Round Top is Plum Run, but it gained a second name, Bloody Run, after the slow stream ran red with the blood of fallen soldiers.

With the rain on July 4, 1863, it overflowed the banks and drowned some wounded men who hadn't been collected yet, reportedly all Civil War Confederates.

The valley was littered with so many bodies that it was over a week after the battle of Gettysburg ended before the fallen men could all be buried.

Cannonball Fragment From Cemetery Ridge
* Cannonball Fragment From Cemetery Ridge

At approximately 1:00 in the afternoon of July 3, 1863, 150 Confederate cannons from the Peach Orchard all the way to Oak Hill opened fire. Concentrating their destructive fire power on the Union troops and artillery positioned on Cemetery Ridge, the cannonade was meant to blast away any resistance to the infantry charge that followed.

Cemetery Ridge Summary: The Union Army took a primary defensive position on Cemetery Ridge, forming the center of the "fishhook" line, with the line of troops curving to the north and east around Cemetery Hill and Culp's Hill. The ridge itself is only 40 feet above the surrounding terrain but almost two miles long, rising to the north roughly 80 feet above the surroundings to form Cemetery Hill and descending on the south end into low, wooded, somewhat marshy ground just north of Little Round Top. The Confederate Army launched multiple attacks on Cemetery Ridge on Day Two and Day Three of the Battle Of Gettysburg but were forced to fall back on each occasion.

This Cannonball shell fragment is heavy and measures approximately 4 x 5 inches. This large piece has been sealed for preservation. Comes with a signed coa and map of recovery area. This cannonball fragment was purchased from the George Olinger collection.

False Embroidered Musician's Insignia
* Non Dug False Embroidered Musician's Insignia -

Gold gilt and beautiful rainbow patina measures 1 1/2" X 5/8". Both attachments are still attached. Purchased from local Gettysburg collection of authentic Civil War artifacts. Prior to the Civil War the lyre became the standard insignia of military band members. Militia bands used many forms of stock styles of lyre insignia sold by nineteenth century outfitters. Photographs from 1851 and onwrard show band leaders with embroidered lyre insignia. It is well documented that many different commercial lyre insignia appeared on band member uniforms and hats. Band musicians and field musicians were different, the latter often wore bugle or trumpet insignia. This is fitting as field musicians played trumpets to signal men of commands issued by their officers.

Musicians on the battlefield were drummers and buglers, with an occasional fifer. Buglers had to learn forty-nine separate calls just for infantry, with more needed for cavalry. These ranged from battle commands to calls for meal time. Some of these required musicians were drummer boys not even in their teens, which allowed an adult man to instead be a foot soldier. The most notable of these under aged musicians was John Clem, also known as "Johnny Shiloh". Union drummers wore white straps to support their drums. The drum and band majors wore baldrics to indicate their status; after the war, this style would be emulated in civilian bands. Drummers would march to the right of a marching column. Similar to buglers, drummers had to learn 39 different beats: fourteen for general use, and 24 for marching cadence. However, buglers were given greater importance than drummers.

Weikert Farm/House Hospital Bottle
* Weikert Farm/House Hospital Morphine Bottle -

The barn, farm buildings and land surrounding the Weikert's Egg Farm were used as field hospitals during the Battle of Gettysburg in July of 1863 by Gordon's Brigade. George Weikert was 63 years old at the time of the battle. Like many others in the area, George and his family left the farm when fighting began on July 1. He returned on July 7 to find about 300 wounded confederate solders on the farm, who according to George stayed "for about six weeks". The entire farm was in complete disarray. The family home had been used as a field surgical hospital. The amputated limbs of soldiers were still piled outside the parlor's windows and the front yard was riddled with graves. The family's stores of dried grain, 25 chickens, 5 head of cattle, and cord wood were all itemized in a petition for compensation filed with the Federal government after the war. The petition also cited general damage to farmland, fences and structures.

It has bubbles in the glass and is a green/blue color approx. 3 in. Tall. It has an iridescent sheen due to minerals that adhered to the bottle while it was buried in the ground. A great RARE addition to your Civil War collection.

CSA Canister Shot From Culp's Hill
* Confederate Canister Shot From Culp's Hill - Largest Used At Gettysburg 2 Inches Wide - Culp's Hill is the only hill on the battlefield that was attacked in some way shape or form on all three days of the battle. The Forces that were mostly involved in the fighting there were Johnson's Confederate division (Stonewall Jackson's former command) and Union troops of the 12th Army Corps under the command of Major General Henry Slocum. During the Battle of Gettysburg, July 1–3, 1863, Culp's Hill was a critical part of the Union Army defensive line, the principal feature of the right flank, or "barbed" portion of what is described as the "fish-hook" line. Holding the hill was by itself unimportant because its heavily wooded sides made it unsuitable for artillery placement, but its loss would have been catastrophic to the Union army. It dominated Cemetery Hill and the Baltimore Pike, the latter being critical for keeping the Union army supplied and for blocking any Confederate advance on Baltimore or Washington, D.C.

This CSA canister shot came from culp's hill and is the largest used at the Battle of Gettysburg - 2".. Comes with display stand and a photo showing the trees riddled with artillery and gun fire.

The .54 caliber Burnside carbine was designed and patented by Ambrose E. Burnside. Burnside was a poor military Officer but rose through the ranks in part because of the success of his weapon - the .54 cal. Burnside. This weapon was manufactured in Rhode Island by the Bristol Firearms Company and later, its successor, the Burnside Rifle Company, from about 1857 to 1865.

* Spencer carbine bullet This dug bullet was ONLY ISSUED TO 5th and 6th Michigan under Brg. General George Armstrong Custer @ Gettysburg. The cartridge has long since deteriorated leaving the bullet as its last testament. The Spencer rifle received the unique advantage and distinction of having President Lincoln firing it during shooting trials on the White House lawn and then giving his personal endorsement! The .52 caliber Spencer carbine had a terribly demoralizing effect on the Confederate soldiers. The Soldiers who carried these must have thought themselves invincible when in combat against Confederates carrying their slow-firing muzzleloaders. It became the most famous of all Civil War small arms.

* Robert Edward Lee

Born: Stratford Hall Alexandria Virginia 1807
Died: Lexington Virginia Oct. 12,1870

Gen. Robert E. Lee concentrated his full strength against Maj. Gen. George G. Meade's Army of the Potomac at the crossroads county seat of Gettysburg. On July 1, Confederate forces converged on the town from west and North, driving Union defenders back through the streets to Cemetery Hill. During the night, reinforcements arrived for both sides. On July 2, Lee attempted to envelop the Federals, first striking the Union left flank at the Peach Orchard, Wheatfield, Devil's Den, and the Round Tops with Longstreet's and Hill's divisions, and then attacking the Union right at Culp's and East Cemetery Hills with Ewell's divisions. By evening,the Federals retained Little Round Top and had repulsed most of Ewell's men. During the morning of July 3, the Confederate infantry were driven from their last toe-hold on Culp's Hill. In the afternoon, after a preliminary artillery bombardment, Lee attacked the Union center on Cemetery Ridge. The Pickett-Pettigrew assault (more popularly, Pickett's Charge) momentarily pierced the Union line but was driven back with severe casualties. Stuart's cavalry attempted to gain the Union rear but was repulsed. On July 4, Lee began withdrawing his army toward Williamsport on the Potomac River. His train of wounded stretched more than fourteen miles.

Included is a authentic Gettysburg .52 cal. Sharps Carbine - Confederate Bullet in dropped condition and a C.S.A. Flat-button. Confederate buttons weren't as fancy as the Unions due in part to their limited resources and money.

Eagle Breastplate - Shield's Museum * Dug Eagle Breast plate - The Wheatfield - Shield's Museum

On the sultry afternoon of July 2, 1863, a wheatfield would become the center of a swirling and confused whirlpool of fighting and death. This wheatfield, one of many such wheatfields that was golden with ripening grain surrounding the south central Pennsylvania town of Gettysburg, would forever be known simply as The Wheatfield. Over the course of one long bloody afternoon, this Wheatfield would become, like places such as Little Round Top, Devil's Den, and the Peach Orchard, firmly entrenched in the American memory as a place American killed American during the bloody battle of Gettysburg. By the end of July 2, the wheat would be trampled and the ground soaked with blood, forever hallowing the ground, surrounding woods, and the simple name of this place where Americans fought and bled and died.

This Eagle Breast Plate was recovered at the Wheatfield on the Gettysburg Battlefield years after the battle and was part of the Shield's Museum collection. The Breast Plate is in dug condition and has a nice patina. The iron loops for attachment have long since rusted away which is common as iron deteriorates when buried in the ground for a long period of time. (see photos)

The arrows on the Breast Plate signify the readiness to defend freedom by force and that the 3 arrows represent the 3 branches of the Federal Government - legislative, executive and judicial or the 3 branches of the Military - Army, Navy and Marines. Furthermore the Eagle's head pointing towards the olive branch signifies a preference for peace rather than war.

Excellent addition to any collection, big or small.

Comes with COA laminated on parchment paper.

12lb. Cannonball from East Cavalry Field * Confederate 12lb. Cannonball Recovered from East Cavalry Field

The final day of the Battle of Gettysburg, July 3, 1863, is best known for the failed Confederate assault on the Union center at Cemetery Ridge. It would later be known as Pickett's Charge. It would be the bloodiest engagement of the Battle of Gettysburg, which had the highest number of casualties during the American Civil War. Just three miles east of Gettysburg that same day raged probably the largest and most vicious cavalry battle of the war centered around Rummel's farm. It would be known as the Battle of East Cavalry Field.

Lee had sent JEB Stuart with four brigades of cavalry the evening before to block any Union advance on the Confederacy's left flank and to ultimately exploit any gains of Pickett's charge. Stuart attempted to gain control of the Low Dutch road but Union commander David McM Gregg had forseen the strategic value of the route and spread out two brigades of Cavalry in heavily picketted and armed positions. For the first time during the entire war the Union Cavalry was able to more than hold their own against some of the most storied Cavalry Brigades of the Confederacy, including the Black Horse Brigade. It was a day for a brand new Union Brigadier General named George Armstrong Custer to make a name for himself. Custer's brigade had held the position on the Low Dutch road and was to be relieved by Stuart's brigades but he was convinced by Stuart to remain and fight.

At about 11 a.m. on July 3, Stuart reached Cress Ridge, just north of what is now called East Cavalry Field, and signaled Lee that he was in position by ordering the firing of four guns, one in each direction of the compass. This was a foolish error because he also alerted Gregg to his presence. The brigades of McIntosh and Custer were positioned to block Stuart. As the Confederates approached, Gregg engaged them with an artillery duel, and the superior skills of the Union horse artillerymen got the better of Stuart's guns.

Offered here is a Confederate 12lb. cannonball recovered on Rummel farm near Low Dutch Road, East Cavalry Field. This ball is in dug condition and has scars it wears as a testament to the brutality both sides had to endure. This rare 12lb cannon ball is just the kind I like… with battle scars but not top much that it can not be positively identified. I aquired this and several other cannonballs, and various artifacts from an a Custer enthusiast in the 90's before he passed.

Comes with COA and map of recovery location provided on laminated parchment paper for historical preservation.

Confederate Gun Tool Gettysburg * RARE Hand Forged Confederate Gun Tool - This Confederate gun tool was dug on Culp's Hill.

Just a Great Gettysburg Civil War artifact from the Great Battle of Gettysburg fought July 1-3, 1863.

"George Rosensteel was a nephew of John H. Rosensteel, who lived through the three days of fighting in Gettysburg. John was also the founder of the well-known Rosensteel Collection; his nephew George, an avid relic collector himself, later built his own National Museum in Gettysburg. The Rosensteel relic collection was later passed down to their daughter, Angela, who in 1941 married Larry Eckert. Eckert worked in his father-in-law´s museum and operated the famed Electric Map until the property was sold to the U.S. government in 1972. The Rosensteel/Eckert collection is the core of the the National Park Service museum collection.  Some items have been deaccessioned by them over the years; others were held in the personal collection of the Eckerts, some of which has also been dispersed by family members following the recent deaths of Larry and Angela".

Gettysburg Confederate Sash Buckle * VERY RARE - LARGE BRASS CONFFEDERATE SASH BUCKLE - CULP'S HILL - During the Battle of Gettysburg, July 1–3, 1863, Culp's Hill was a critical part of the Union Army defensive line, the principal feature of the right flank, or "barbed" portion of what is described as the "fish-hook" line. Holding the hill was by itself unimportant because its heavily wooded sides made it unsuitable for artillery placement, but its loss would have been catastrophic to the Union army. It dominated Cemetery Hill and the Baltimore Pike, the latter being critical for keeping the Union army supplied and for blocking any Confederate advance on Baltimore or Washington, D.C.

The Sash Buckle measures approximately 3 1/2 inches tall x 2 1/4 inches wide and it complete. The Buckle has a dark rich patina. It is just an AWESOME rare artifact ... This is the ONLY SASH BUCKLE I HAVE EVER HAD !

This Confederate Sash Buckle was part of the George Olinger estate and was purchased by a local collector at George's estate sale back in the late 1990's. I just bought it in April of 2013 from the collector.

What makes this Confederate Sash Buckle unique and so rare, is the hammered design on the face. The Confederate soldier who owned it was certainly a man of means and could afford to have such a buckle.

Included will be a photocopy of a famous image of Confederate POW's Captured at Gettysburg.

Guaranteed authentic and come with signed COA laminated on parchment paper.

1863 Merrimac Civil War Token * 1863 Merrimac Civil War Token - RARE - The battle between the Monitor and Merrimac is one of the most famous Naval engagements of the Civil War.

The engagement between these two ironclad ships was a watershed in naval warfare; the days of the wooden navies were numbered. These particular vessels did not engage each other again. The Virginia was scuttled by her crew when the Confederates abandoned Norfolk on May 11, 1862, and the Monitor sank in a gale off Cape Hatteras on December 31, 1862. However, the U.S. Navy recognized the value of the design and ordered 35 more ships of that class in 1862 and another 24 in 1863, although many of them were never completed.

This Civil War token is a rare one to find. The condition is very nice - see image.

Gettysburg 12 lb. Confederate EXPLODING Cannonball * SUPER RARE 12lb. Confederate Wood Plug Exploding Cannonball- Cemetery Ridge site of Picketts Charge

On July 3, 1863 at about 1:00 pm Confederate forces along a two mile line opened fire with cannons on Unions positions along Cemetery Ridge. The cannonade was heard 60 miles away in Baltimore Maryland. In a description of the cannonade that preceded Pickett's Charge Confederate Brig. Gen. Evander M. Law wrote, "The cannonade in the center ... presented one of the most magnificent battle-scenes witnessed during the war. Looking up the valley towards Gettysburg, the hills on either side were capped with crowns of flame and smoke, as 300 guns, about equally divided between the two ridges, vomited their iron hail upon each other."

The Union position in particular was obscured by the smoke. Many of the Confederate explosive cannonballs had defective fuses and upon landing would smolder and produce clouds of smoke. Union artillery chief Brig. Gen. Henry J. Hunt had only about 80 guns available to conduct counter-battery fire; the geographic features of the Union line had limited areas for effective gun emplacement. He also ordered that firing cease to conserve ammunition, but to fool Alexander, Hunt ordered his cannons to cease fire slowly to create the illusion that they were being destroyed one by one. By the time all of Hunt's cannons ceased fire, and still blinded by the smoke from battle, Alexander fell for Hunt's illusion and interpreted this to mean that many of the batteries had been destroyed.

Believing that the Union position had been weakened, Longstreet ordered the infantry assault on Cemetery Ridge that has come to be know as Pickett's Charge. The charge was as futile as it was devastating to the Confederate forces. Many historians agree that Pickett's Charge was the decisive turning point of the Civil War.

Dug condition exceptional civil war cannon ball from Gettysburg. Untreated and as was found, right from the hallowed ground.

Comes with display stand, documentation and map of recovery area, all laminated on aged parchment paper for Historical Preservation.

Georgia Frame buckle * RARE CONFEDERATE GEORGIA FRAME BUCKLE - Recovered in the "VALLEY OF DEATH". The two highest battlefield points are at Round Top to the south with the higher round summit of Big Round Top, the lower oval summit of Little Round Top, and a saddle between. The Round Tops are rugged and strewn with large boulders; as is Devil's Den to the west. Big Round Top, known also to locals of the time as Sugar Loaf, is 116 feet higher than its Little companion. Its steep slopes are heavily wooded, which made it unsuitable for siting artillery without a large effort to climb the heights with horse-drawn guns and clear lines of fire; Little Round Top was unwooded, but its steep and rocky form made it difficult to deploy artillery in mass. However, Cemetery Hill was an excellent site for artillery, commanding all of the Union lines on Cemetery Ridge and the approaches to them. Little Round Top and Devil's Den were key locations for General John Bell Hood's division in Longstreet's assault during the second day of battle, July 2, 1863. The Plum Run Valley between Houck's Ridge and the Round Tops earned the name Valley of Death on that day.

False Embroidered Cavalry Crossed Sabres * False Embroidered Cavalry Officer's Crossed Sabres Insignia -

In 1855 the U.S. Army created mounted units that were actually called Cavalry. During the period 1858-1861 both Cavalry and Dragoons wore the crossed saber insignia. Dragoons wore the insignia in the more familiar way oriented edge up. Cavalry wore it in a way that we might call upside down with the edge downward. In August 1861 it was decided to rename dragoons and mounted rifles as cavalry and all of them wore crossed sabers edge up. During the Civil War cavalrymen wore crossed sabers on the front of their dress hat and either on the top of or on the front of their forage cap or kepi.

Peach Orchard Arrow Hook Us Buckle - Shield's Museum * Peach Orchard Arrow Hook US Buckle - Shield's Museum

Peach Orchard combat began with Union artillery in the orchard counter firing on Alexander's batteries which reduced Ames' supply of Union cannon ammunition. When Hood's Assault advanced eastward over the Emmitsburg Rd and across the slope south of the orchard, "Ames had all of his spherical case [ammunition] carried to his left section, Lt. James B. Hazelton's," to fire on the infantry, while Ames' "center and right sections continued their counter battery fire with shot." With the Confederate left flank to the south exposed to the orchard's Union forces, the cannon and infantry in the "Peach Orchard were able to rake Kershaw's lines severely". As Union officer Watson's guns fired a last volley of canister at the Carolinians, the 2nd New Hampshire Volunteer Infantry advanced southward into "the Peach Orchard to save the [Watson] guns…crowding between the limbers and guns, reformed, and emerged at the orchard's southwest corner, its right extending to the Emmitsburg Road." "The Second opened fire on the South Carolinians in its front, the Second Battalion and the Eighth Regiment. The South Carolinians…fell back to the bottom of the slope 150 or so yards from the orchard's edge. Bailey then shifted the Second's line to the rear of some fence rails that were piled along the side of the orchard where a fence had been."

This US Buckle from the Peach Orchard has both arrow hooks and tongue for attachment to belt. The face has a nice brown patina and virtually all the lead still fills the back. This is a prized US Buckle from a significant engagement known simply as the "Peach Orchard". Don't miss your chance to add this gem to your collection or as an awesome starter piece.

False Embroidered Musician's Insignia * JUST IN - False Embroidered Musician's Insignia -

Prior to the Civil War the lyre became the standard insignia of military band members. Militia bands used many forms of stock styles of lyre insignia sold by nineteenth century outfitters. Photographs from 1851 and onwrard show band leaders with embroidered lyre insignia. It is well documented that many different commercial lyre insignia appeared on band member uniforms and hats. Band musicians and field musicians were different, the latter often wore bugle or trumpet insignia. This is fitting as field musicians played trumpets to signal men of commands issued by their officers.

Musicians on the battlefield were drummers and buglers, with an occasional fifer. Buglers had to learn forty-nine separate calls just for infantry, with more needed for cavalry. These ranged from battle commands to calls for meal time. Some of these required musicians were drummer boys not even in their teens, which allowed an adult man to instead be a foot soldier. The most notable of these under aged musicians was John Clem, also known as "Johnny Shiloh". Union drummers wore white straps to support their drums. The drum and band majors wore baldrics to indicate their status; after the war, this style would be emulated in civilian bands. Drummers would march to the right of a marching column. Similar to buglers, drummers had to learn 39 different beats: fourteen for general use, and 24 for marching cadence. However, buglers were given greater importance than drummers.

A great RARE addition to your Civil War collection.

The Forces that were mostly involved in the fighting there were Johnson's Confederate division (Stonewall Jackson's former command) and Union troops of the 12th Army Corps under the command of Major General Henry Slocum.

During the Battle of Gettysburg, July 1–3, 1863, Culp's Hill was a critical part of the Union Army defensive line, the principal feature of the right flank, or "barbed" portion of what is described as the "fish-hook" line. Holding the hill was by itself unimportant because its heavily wooded sides made it unsuitable for artillery placement, but its loss would have been catastrophic to the Union army.

Iron Brigade Hardee Hat Pin - Railroad Cut - Shield's Museum * Iron Brigade Hardee Hat Pin - Railroad Cut - Shield's Museum

The Iron Brigade, also known as the Iron Brigade of the West or the Black Hat Brigade, was an infantry brigade in the Union Army of the Potomac . Noted for its strong discipline, its unique uniform appearance, and its tenacious fighting ability, the Iron Brigade suffered the highest percentage of casualties of any brigade in the war.

The nickname "Iron Brigade", with its connotation of fighting men with iron dispositions, was applied formally or informally to a number of units in the Civil War and in later conflicts. The Iron Brigade of the West was the unit that received the most lasting publicity in its use of the nickname.

McPhearsons Ridge Railway Cut

The railway cut of the Gettysburg Battlefield was the place of an 1863 military engagement during the first Day of the Battle of Gettysburg, near the Edward McPherson farmhouse. It was an excavation in which railroad tracks had not yet been placed, but which provided a deep entrenchment. During the day, units from the Union Army of the Potomac deployed near the railway cut to contest the attacks of the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia. The Confederates were held off during the morning and early afternoon but were able to drive off the Union army due to superior numbers.

ROSENSTEEL MUSUEM CONFEDERATE POWDER FLASK * ROSENSTEEL MUSUEM CONFEDERATE POWDER FLASK

This Civil War Flask has no makers name on it anywhere which is normal for Confederate flasks. The flask measures approx. 8 1/2" long and all parts are present with exception to lace ring holders.

"George Rosensteel was a nephew of John H. Rosensteel, who lived through the three days of fighting in Gettysburg. John was also the founder of the well-known Rosensteel Collection; his nephew George, an avid relic collector himself, later built his own National Museum in Gettysburg. The Rosensteel relic collection was later passed down to their daughter, Angela, who in 1941 married Larry Eckert. Eckert worked in his father-in-law´s museum and operated the famed Electric Map until the property was sold to the U.S. government in 1972. The Rosensteel/Eckert collection is the core of the the National Park Service museum collection. Some items have been deaccessioned by them over the years; others were held in the personal collection of the Eckerts, some of which has also been dispersed by family members following the recent deaths of Larry and Angela".

Confederate Musket Tool * Confederate Musket Tool - Recovered in the field west of McPherson's Ridge, site of first day's battle.

On July 1, 1863 south of the Chambersburg pike, the brigades of Brig. Gens. James J. Archer and Joseph R. Davis assaulted through McPherson's Woods. The Federal Iron Brigade under Brig. Gen. Solomon Meredith enjoyed initial success against Archer, capturing several hundred men, including Archer himself.

The tides turned for the Union as Pettigrew's North Carolina Brigade came on line, they flanked the 19th Indiana and drove the Iron Brigade back. Slowly the Iron Brigade was pushed out of the woods toward Seminary Ridge. Hill added Maj. Gen. William Dorsey Pender's division to the assault, and the I Corps was driven back through the grounds of the Lutheran Seminary and Gettysburg streets.

The first day at Gettysburg ranks as the 23rd biggest battle of the war by number of troops engaged. About one quarter of Meade's army (22,000 men) and one third of Lee's army (27,000) were engaged. The 26th North Carolina (the largest regiment in the army with 839 men) lost heavily, leaving the first day's fight with around 212 men.

A great RARE addition to your Civil War collection.

12 pound Cannonball from Culp's Hill - Shield's Museum * 12 pound Cannonball from Culp's Hill - Shield's Museum

On July 3, General Lee's plan was to renew his attacks by coordinating the action on Culp's Hill with another attack by Longstreet and A.P. Hill against Cemetery Ridge. Longstreet was not ready for an early attack, and the Union forces on Culp's Hill did not accommodate Lee by waiting. At dawn, five Union batteries opened fire on Steuart's brigade in the positions they had captured and kept them pinned down for 30 minutes before a planned attack by two of Geary's brigades. However, the Confederates beat them to the punch. An attempt by Lee to hold off the start of the fighting was fruitless. Ewell sent back a terse reply by messenger: "Too late to recall".

This rare 12 pound Civil War Cannonball was an early recovery from Culp's Hill. A substantial hill with heavily wooded slopes, Culp's Hill was a perfect anchor for the Union right flank at Gettysburg, and became known as the point of the famous "fishhook".

The cannonball was an early recovery of the Shield's Museum. The cannonball has not been painted or coated with any sealant. The surface is pitted but has no gashes of cuts in surface. The cannonball comes with display stand and documentation, map of recovery area for preservation. laminated on parchment paper.

US 12lb. Bormann Cannonball from East Cavalry Field * US 12lb. Bormann Cannonball Recovered from East Cavalry Field

On the morning of July 3rd 1863, recognizing the importance of the intersection of the Hanover and Low Dutch Roads – the Low Dutch Road being a direct route to the rear of the Union center –US Army Brigadier General David McM Gregg decided to strongly picket it. With his two brigades, Gregg deployed a long, thin line. Col. John B. McIntosh’s men covered the intersection, while Col. J. I. Gregg’s men connected with Union infantry on Wolf’s Hill. McIntosh’s men relieved Custer’s brigade, who began moving out. However, Gregg persuaded Custer, who was not under his command, to stay. Just then, Stuart’s command, which had arrived on nearby Cress Ridge, fired four artillery shells and tried to flush out the Union cavalry, signaling the beginning of fighting at East Cavalry Field.

Custer agreed to stay, and McIntosh’s men deployed. Before long, a heavy dismounted engagement raged in the fields around the John Rummell farm. Stuart’s command took heavy casualties in this engagement, and he sent Chambliss’ brigade forward in a mounted charge. Gregg responded by sending the 7th Michigan Cavalry, with Custer leading them, forward in a mounted charge that stopped the Confederate assault dead in its tracks. The Southerners fell back, and Stuart ordered a mounted countercharge by the brigades of Brig. Gens. Fitzhugh Lee and Wade Hampton.

The Southern horsemen deployed into line of battle, slowly marching, the blades of their sabers glinting in the bright afternoon sun. They charged, headed straight for Union artillery blasting away at them. Gregg again ordered one of Custer’s units, the 1st Michigan Cavalry, to charge, and, with Custer at their head crying, “Come on you Wolverines!” their charge split the Confederate line in two. Units of McIntosh’s brigade and elements of the 5th, 6th and 7th Michigan Cavalry regiments joined in, attacking the flanks of Stuart’s charging lines, and the confused Confederates broke and fell back. Taking more heavy losses, Stuart abandoned his quest to reach the intersection of the Hanover and Low Dutch Roads. The fight for East Cavalry Field was over.

Offered here is a US 12lb. Bormann cannonball recovered on Rummel farm, East Cavalry Field. This ball is in dug condition and is inert, the lead fuse and shot have been removed.

Rare 12Lb Confederate Explosive Cannonball Pickett's Charge * Rare 12lb. Confederate Explosive Cannonball Pickett's Charge

- On July 3, 1863 at about 1:00 pm Confederate forces along a two mile line opened fire with cannons on Unions positions along Cemetery Ridge. The cannonade was heard 60 miles away in Baltimore Maryland. In a description of the cannonade that preceded Pickett's Charge Confederate Brig. Gen. Evander M. Law wrote, "The cannonade in the center ... presented one of the most magnificent battle-scenes witnessed during the war. Looking up the valley towards Gettysburg, the hills on either side were capped with crowns of flame and smoke, as 300 guns, about equally divided between the two ridges, vomited their iron hail upon each other."

Confederate cannons from the Peach Orchard all the way to Oak Hill opened fire. Concentrating their destructive fire power on the Union troops and artillery positioned on Cemetery Ridge, the cannonade was meant to blast away any resistance to the infantry charge that followed. For nearly two hours the ground shook. This rare cannonball was purchased many years ago from the George Olinger estate (May 1994) - George was the former Head of Historic Society for 35+ years. This rare Confederate cannonball has been treated by electrolysis for preservation.

Many Confederate cannonballs missed their intended target due to poor visibility and bad recon communication. This 12 lb. exploding cannonball was recovered after the Battle of Gettysburg on Cemetery Ridge near Meade's Headquarters.

Dug Model 1851 Cavalry and Officers Sword Buckle - First Day's Battle * Dug Model 1851 Cavalry and Officers Sword Buckle - First Day's Battle

By 10:00 on the morning of July 1, 1863, the situation near McPherson's Ridge, outside the town of Gettysburg, was becoming increasingly desperate for the Army of the Potomac. Tennessee and Alabama soldiers from James Archer's Brigade had already crossed over the open field in front of Herr Ridge, splashing across the tangled stream bottom at Willoughby's Run, and now were pressing up through the McPherson's (Herbst) Woods. The Union Cavalry screen that had been gallantly holding the ground west of Gettysburg was simply no match for the huge Confederate force converging upon the strategic town.

The use of the rectangular sword belt plate was approved with the Federal regulation of 1851 to be worn by Officers carrying swords, and enlisted Cavalry. This sword belt buckle is in good dug condition and was purchased from Stephen Olinger, it was part of George Olinger's, his father, personal collection. The model 1851 sword belt plate has a beautiful natural patina on the brass which comes from natural aging and is stamped with a bench mark on the back. The buckle originally had a complete silver wreath, part has been knocked off and keeper became separated from the buckle.

1861 Springfield Rifled Musket
* ULTRA-RARE Civil War 1861 Springfield Rifled Musket from Gettysburg

- This authentic 1861 Springfield comes direct to you from a Gettysburg collection of authentic Civil War artifacts from the Battle of Gettysburg. The Original 1861 Springfield's are very rare and highly prized muskets. Even the original bayonet and bullet "Worm" have been kept together according to the family it was purchased from. If you consider how many 1861 Springfield muskets did not survive the Civil War you begin to realize just how rare a complete, working 1861 Springfield is today.

This 1861 Springfield is from Gettysburg and is extremely rare as there were only an estimated 79,000 produced. Production of the MODEL 1861 rapidly increased and between 1861 and 1862 there were 265,129 produced and the majority of those were made in 1862. Later in 1863 - 273,265 were produced and in 1864 - 255,000, by 1865 they were obsolete.

More than 1,000,000 model 1861 muskets were manufactured during the Civil War, so many that there were between 17-20 subcontractors as the Springfield could not produce them as fast as the demand. The model 1861 Springfield was a modification of the Model 1855 rifle-musket that eliminated the patch box and the Maynard tape primer. These changes lowered the manufacturing costs and time. By 1865 the Model 1861 was obsolete and none were produced.

The Model 1861 was the primary musket at the start of the Civil War. Musket was designed as a single shot .58 cal. rifled muzzleloader featuring iron buttplate, "C" shaped hammer, bolster with clean out screw, two leaf sight, iron trigger guard, three flat barrel bands held in place with springs, two strap hooks on middle band and trigger guard, tulip head ramrod with bulged shank and threaded end, iron nose cap. Musket was manufactured by Springfield Armory, Springfield, Massachusetts. Lock was marked "1861" behind the hammer, with eagle and "US / SPRINGFIELD" in front. The barrel is marked "VP" over eagle head and the adjacent facet to the left is marked with little "s", buttplate marked "US", three bands each marked "U". Round barrel length 40in.

Comes with signed provenance laminated on parchment paper for preservation.

Dug Cartridge Box Plate - Cemetery Ridge - Pickett's Charge - Shield's Museum * Dug Cartridge Box Plate - Cemetery Ridge - Pickett's Charge - Shield's Museum

Cemetery Ridge and Pickett's Charge - an Infantry assault ordered by Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee against Major Gen. George G. Meade's Union positions on Cemetery Ridge on July 3, 1863, the last day of the Battle of Gettysburg during the American Civil War. Its futility was predicted by the charge's commander, Lt. Gen. James Longstreet, and it was arguably an avoidable mistake from which the Southern war effort never fully recovered psychologically. The farthest point reached by the attack has been referred to as the High-Water mark of the Confederacy.

After Confederate attacks on both Union flanks had failed the day and night before, Lee was determined to strike the Union center on the third day. On the night of July 2, General Meade correctly predicted at a council of war that Lee would try an attack on his lines in the center the following morning.

The Cemetery Ridge infantry assault was preceded by a massive artillery bombardment that was meant to soften up the Union defense and silence its artillery, but it was largely ineffective. Approximately 12,500 men in nine infantry brigades advanced over open fields for three-quarters of a mile under heavy Union artillery and rifle fire. Although some Confederates were able to breach the low stone wall that shielded many of the Union defenders, they could not maintain their hold and were repulsed with over 50% casualties, a decisive defeat that ended the three-day battle and Lee's campaign into Pennsylvania Years later, when asked why his charge at Gettysburg failed, General Pickett replied: "I've always thought the Yankees had something to do with it."

This US Cartridge Box Plate has a beautiful brown patina and a nice face. There are no gashes or dents from being dug.... just a beautiful Cartridge Box Plate ! The back still retains nearly all of the original lead filling. Like most dug Cartridge Box Plates, the iron loops for attachment to the Cartridge Box have long since rusted away. Iron does not last years and hers buried in the ground long, especially when the iron loops were fairly small to begin with.

The US Cartridge Box Plate was recovered along Cemetery Ridge and was part of he Shield's Museum collection. The condition is that of a later find for the Shields Museum. Still this is an excellent artifact from one, if not the most important battles of the Civil War - Gettysburg. Furthermore from the same ridge Union soldiers defended against Pickett's Charge which also marks the furthest point north the Confederacy made it.. the "High Water" mark.

Comes with COA laminated on parchment paper.

Gettysburg Confederate 6lb Cannonball - Shield's Museum * Rarest Gettysburg Confederate 6lb Cannonball - Shield's Museum

RAREST Confederate cannonball from the Battle of Gettysburg - Shield's Museum - There was ONLY one 6 pound Cannon at Gettysburg and that was in Latham's Battery under Longstreet's Army of Northern Virginia. All 6 pound cannon balls at Gettysburg were recovered in the Area of Plum Run, The Little Round Top and Devil's Den. This is the only place on the Gettysburg Battlefield that 6 pound cannonballs have ever been recovered.

"The 6-pounder field gun was virtually obsolete at the beginning of the War because of the development of the much superior Napoleon and 3-inch rifles. The Confederate States ordered that they be melted down to make other weapons, and in Federal service they were modified by rifling the barrels. At Gettysburg, there was only one of these guns on the field, that in Alexander Latham's battery in James Longstreet's I Corps, Army of Northern Virginia. Field guns fired solid shot, explosive 6 lb,. Bormann, artillery shells, spherical case, and canister". (National Park Service)

Mr. Arthur Shields was a collector of Gettysburg Civil War relics and memorabilia. He opened his museum in 1925 and the museum featured items recovered by Mr. Shields and local residents from the Battle of Gettysburg. The contents were sold by Redding's Auction in November of 1985 and most items are now in private collections.

Glenn, the son of Arthur, noted that some of the relics were collected by farmers and town residents right after the two armies left on July 04, 1863.

Dug Springfield Musket Butt Plate * Dug Springfield Musket Butt Plate - This Springfield percussion musket butt-plate was recovered in the area of the Valley Of Death prior to being illegal to recover Gettysburg Battlefield relics. This butt plate was offered it to me along with a large group of relics from a previous National Park Guide. An awesome relic from the Battle of Gettysburg, recovered at what gained a new name.. "Bloody Run", where the flooding stream drowned many a Confederate soldier before they could be recovered in the rainy days that immediately followed the Battle of Gettysburg... and yet Union soldiers were saved from drowning in blood and water.

Puppy Paw US Buckle From The Wheatfield * Puppy Paw US Buckle From The "Wheatfield"

On the sultry afternoon of July 2, 1863, a wheatfield would become the center of a swirling and confused whirlpool of fighting and death. This wheatfield, one of many such wheatfields that was golden with ripening grain surrounding the south central Pennsylvania town of Gettysburg, would forever be known simply as "The Wheatfield".

Over the course of one long bloody afternoon, this wheatfield would become, like places such as Little Round Top, Devil´s Den, and the Peach Orchard, firmly entrenched in the American memory as a place American killed American during the bloody battle of Gettysburg.

By the end of July 2, the wheat would be trampled and the ground soaked with blood, forever hallowing the ground, surrounding woods, and the simple name of this place where Americans fought and bled and died.

This buckle was purchased from the Olinger estate in 1994. George was head of the Historic Society of Gettysburg for 30+ years and amassed a huge collection of Gettysburg Civil War artifacts. The soldiers initials "T H" are carved in lead of this great Puppy Paw Us Buckle from the "Wheatfield". Comes with signed COA and map laminated on parchment paper.

Not Dug US Cavalry Bit Emblem From Shields Museum
* Non Dug US Cavalry Bit Emblem From Shields Museum

- I purchased this US Cavalry bit emblem along with several other relics from a collector who attended the auction Mr. Arthur Shields was a collector of Gettysburg Civil War relics and memorabilia. He opened his museum in 1925 and the museum featured items recovered by Mr. Shields and local residents from the Battle of Gettysburg. The contents were sold by Redding's Auction in November of 1985 and most items are now in private collections.

Glenn, the son of Arthur Shields, noted that some of the relics were collected by farmers and town residents right after the two armies left on July 04, 1863. Many of these artifacts were passed from generation to generation. "The people wanted to sell it and my father bought it from them." Arthur Shields collected and sold artifacts until he died.
