HALF OF CONFEDERATE 12-PDR CASE SHOT, WINEBRENNER FARM, GETTYSBURG – GEISELMAN COLLECTION

$375.00 ON HOLD

Quantity Available: 1

Item Code: 224-407

Here is a large portion of a Confederate 12-pdr “side loader” case shot recovered from the Gettysburg battlefield. Specifically, from the Winebrenner Farm.  This is perhaps just over half of the cannon ball in relic condition.  Iron has surface rust but no pitting. The fuse hole and the “side loader” hole are both visible.  Additionally, there is a screw hole at the bottom of the fragment and this may have originally been part of an old relic display board.  This C.S. 12-pound spherical shell fragment is identified in John Geiselman’s collection by his museum listings. Originally sold as Item# R11772.  [jet]

*******************

The Horse Soldier is pleased to offer a number of items from the John P. Geiselman collection, a collection that was on display for many years at the Geiselman Country Store Museum on Barlow - Two Taverns Road. Geiselman began his collecting as a child in the early 1920s, and during the pre-World II period had access to artifacts that had been purchased earlier at the estate sales of the Trostle, Rogers, Rose, Weikert, and Wentz farms - local properties that figured prominently in the battle and its aftermath. During this period he had access as well to the Hill , Plank, and Stewart collections, and was able to acquire other items that had been sold from turn-of-the-century relics establishments such as the Danner, Ziegler, and Oak Ridge Museums. Furthermore, Geiselman carefully documented most artifacts, and collectors perusing the list will be able to note, in many instances, not only the source of the relic and the date of its recovery, but also the part of the battlefield from which it came. In other words, his collection is the last major grouping of Gettysburg artifacts assembled and documented by a local resident.
