This is an excavated .577 caliber Confederate bullet. This style is an English-made Enfield bullet with “57” stamped inside the cavity and with a box wood plug to aid expansion. Made in England by Eley Brothers and run through the blockade into the Confederacy. Nice patina. Recovered along the Taneytown Road at Gettysburg by Ken Bream.

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 #212.   [jet] [ph:L]
