Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 2020-931

This is an excavated Pattern 1839 oval US cartridge box plate. It has an overall brown patina under some lead oxidation on the rim that has come over from the back. The brass face displays the central “US”. The reverse has 60%-70% of the lead fill. The lead has a pitted appearance and the two wire loops have rusted away suggesting this was found in a wet area. Plate remains in good “dug” condition with no dings or edge damage to the face. This relic was recovered at the camp of the 2nd Army Corps near Taneytown, Maryland.

During the Gettysburg Campaign, thousands of Union soldiers passed through Taneytown to and from the battle.  Maj. Gen. George G. Meade arrived early on the morning of June 29th and established his headquarters on the Benjamin Shunk farm near town. The 3rd Corps commanded by General Sickles arrived in Taneytown on June 30, 1863 and General Hancock's 2nd Corps passed through town on the following afternoon, camping nearby.
