Nice .69 caliber musket ball. Measures 0.655” with good white patina overall. Recovered at Stony Point, NY.

During the American Revolution, the King's Ferry at Stony Point linked New York and the southern colonies with New England; it was used many times by General George Washington’s Continental Army, and in 1781 Washington’s French allies used it on their way to the Battle of Yorktown.

When the British captured this rocky peninsula in May 1779, they began to construct an earthen fortress intended to disrupt Washington’s Continental Army in the Hudson Highlands and block the King’s Ferry crossing below. Two months later, on July 16, George Washington and Brigadier General Anthony Wayne launched a daring nighttime assault that surprised the garrison and allowed American forces to gain control of the fort within a half hour.

From the collection of author/publisher Dean Thomas.  [jet] [ph:L]
