Excavated lead band which was the sabot from a U.S. 3” Hotchkiss artillery shell. Dirt covered. Grooves from cannon barrel rifling visible. Recovered from woods between Big Round Top and Devil’s Den.

From the Iva Rosensteel-Rider collection.  Mrs. Rider was the sister of George Rosensteel, who started the Electric Map museum in Gettysburg. Eventually, it became a part of the Rider collection in Gettysburg, which remained in the family until The Horse Soldier purchased the collection in June 2016.   [jet]
