$495.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1054-203

A large piece of oak measuring 10” tall x 5” wide x 4” thick.  Protruding from the center of the piece is a three-groove minie ball.  This chunk of wood is completely solid with no rot or soft spots. Has a tape label on top with "Gettysburg" in modern printing; there is also a white "2".

A perfect example of a “wounded tree” that once stood between the opposing armies.  This relic came out of the Lee’s Headquarters Museum, one of the oldest private collections of relics and antiques in the Gettysburg area. Lee’s Headquarters Museum was located in the Widow Thompson home, on the Chambersburg Pike (currently US Route 30 west).  [jet]
