    Of Special Note: This is and authentic Civil War artifact that still has remnants of the dried, chalky clay-like dirt it was found in. It was recovered by relic hunter colleagues in decades past from private land that was part of the Gettysburg battlefield. Along with the archival display shown, you will receive an extensive Certificate of Authenticity & Documentation Package with your treasure.

    This bullet saw action during the Battle for Gettysburg of July 1-3, 1863

    Forever locked in history, names like Devil's Den, little Round Top, the Wheatfield, the Peach Orchard and Pickett's Charge on Cemetery Hill mark the most costly battle in U.S. history with as many as 51,000 casualties (those killed, wounded, missing or captured).

    Four and a half months later, at the dedication of the Soldier's national Cemetery in Gettysburg, President Lincoln gave the Gettysburg Address, one of the most influential American speeches ever delivered. The bullet in this display was recovered from private land and saw action in the Battle of Gettysburg.

    Your Battle of Gettysburg Ammunition comes ready for display, including:

    1. A non-fired or dropped .69 caliber musket ball
    2. A detailed, multi-page Certificate of Authenticity research and written by Robert
    3. "Dinna fire till ye can see the whites of their e'en!" Historic Brief
    4. An archival 5" X 5" display stand ready for display on your desk or bookshelf.

    About the Round Musket Ball:

    This round lead projectile still has remnants of the dried, chalky clay-like dirt it was found in. When the Civil War broke out, most of the armories had large stock piles of Revolutionary and post Revolution (mid-1800's) weapons that fired round lead balls, not the more advance "minie ball." This musket ball was either fired from a smooth bore musket, or a rifle that fired round balls. This type of weapon had been in use since the 16th Century, and was not very accurate, hence the phrase, “Wait until you see the whites of their eyes!” first used in 1743 when Sir Andrew Agnew of Lochnaw warned his Regiment, the Royal Scots Fusiliers, not to fire until they could “see the white’s of their e’en.”
