BULLET IN WOOD FROM GETTYSBURG, KEN BREAM COLLECTION

$225.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1163-133

This is an excavated section of wood with a fired bullet embedded inside. Piece measures 3” x 1.25” x 1” overall. Bullet is mushroomed but appears to be an Enfield bullet (no grooves). The wood remains solid and in good condition. Recovered from unrecorded location on the Gettysburg battlefield by Ken Bream. Early photographers on the battlefield recorded many images of the bullet struck trees.

This is from the Ken Bream collection that was sold at auction in October 2021. Mr. Bream was a 1970 graduate of Gettysburg High School and life-long relic hunter and collector. His parents managed the Stuckey’s Restaurant that was once located on the north-west corner of the intersection of Emmitsburg and Wheatfield Roads. In the late 1960s through the early 1970s Ken worked on the Eisenhower Farm as a groundskeeper, maintenance man, and general helper for the Eisenhower’s. For many years, he was the Gettysburg Dog Enforcement Officer.  This was lot #266.   [jet] [ph:L]
