These are .58 caliber, three-groove, “minie” balls. This is the regulation bullet for the Springfield rifle musket and typical of that used by both sides during the Civil War.

The bullets feature a good white patina and are in “dropped” condition. Recovered by Mr. Bream along Seminary Ridge.

These bullets were found by local Gettysburg resident and relic hunter Ken Bream. Mr. Bream was born and raised in Gettysburg and grew up in a house right next to the famous Peach Orchard. He graduated from Gettysburg High School and for a while worked for Johnny Johnson who owned the General Longstreet’s Headquarters Museum which once stood on Seminary Ridge, right along Confederate Avenue near the Longstreet Headquarters marker. Mr. Bream obtained some relics from this now defunct museum and dug many more on private property surrounding the battlefield and on the Confederate approach and retreat routes. He also worked for the Eisenhower’s on their farm in the 60s and 70s. These were obtained from the auction of Mr. Bream’s collection in October of 2021 and were from Lot 224.  [jet] [PH:L]
