LARGE SECTION OF LOG WITH TWO EMBEDDED BULLETS, FROM LEE’S HEADQUARTERS AUCTION

$2,750.00 ON HOLD

Quantity Available: 1

Item Code: 37-430

Large and heavy section of old oak tree. Measures approximately 9” x 7” x 21” with two bullets embedded deep into the wood. One of the lead missiles is three-groove minie ball. The other appears to possibly be a Williams “type I” patent bullet. Wood remains solid; bark on one side.

Bullet riddled trees were a common sight around Gettysburg after the battle. Several photographers even took special effort to record the “wounded trees”, most notably on Culp’s Hill.

The contents of the Lee’s Headquarters museum in Gettysburg was sold off in a series of auctions by Redding Auction Services. This piece was sold at auction on March 18, 2000, as Lot #300.

The original auction tag (“300”), a tag written by the collector who had the winning bid, and a copy of the complete auction listing accompany this rare Battle of Gettysburg-related item.   [jet] [ph:L]
