From the famous Rosensteel Little Round Top Museum / Rosensteel Family Collection. Family history holds that George D. Rosensteel, a long time relic collector, established a Civil War museum in Gettysburg in 1921. He subsequently added the fine relic collection of John H. Rosensteel to the museum. John, George's uncle, lived through the three days of fighting and began gathering war artifacts from the Gettysburg battlefield once the armies left the scene. In 1941, Lawrence Eckert married George Rosensteel's daughter, Angela, and began working at his father-in-law's National Museum. When the Rosensteel family sold the Ziegler's Grove property to the U.S. government in 1972, the family also donated the museum's relic collection to the National Park Service's Gettysburg Battlefield. Eckert was retained by the NPS and became curator of the huge relic collection at Gettysburg. During the same period, the Eckerts' began assembling their own personal Gettysburg collection.

Shot has a nice, dark, smooth olive patina. Metal straps perfect. Chipping along the bottom edge.

An early battlefield find from a famous Gettysburg family renowned for its Gettysburg artifacts.
