Recovered from the Daniel Lady farm, 600 yards east of barn on Route 116 East. Exhibits customary rust and pitting. Fuse present, but partially disintegrated. Disarming hole at the front snout.  This shell is a relic from the second or third day’s fight, July 2-3, 1863.

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.  [jp]
