FEBRUARY 26TH – CATALOG UPDATE! GETTYSBURG AND ANTIETAM DAY! 19 ARTIFACTS FROM THE GETTYSBURG AND ANTIETAM CAMPAIGNS/BATTLES WERE ADDED!

It is all about the provenance!  When I began collecting Civil War artifacts back when I was a child, I was always much more interested in the recovery location of an artifact than the rarity or value of the artifact itself.  As a historian, I have made every effort to acquire artifacts with solid provenance.  The intent of this website is to offer Civil War relics with a historical connection so that the collector can feel secure in the knowledge that they are getting something from a specific event or place.  Each item includes a provenance letter with all of the details that I know about the piece.

JUST ADDED ON 12/11 - BATTLE OF GETTYSBURG / 1ST DAY'S BATTLE NEAR THE FAIRFIELD ROAD - High Impact Fired Bullet - found by Robert Mehring in 1963 - Rosensteel Collection

Product Details

This fired bullet was once part of the famous Rosensteel Collection of Gettysburg. This specific relic was identified as having been found on the Mehring Farm by Robert Mehring in 1963. The Mehring Farm (this was not what the area was called during the battle - the name applies to the 20th century owners of the farm at that time), based upon newspaper articles found on the internet, was located just off of the Fairfield Road between McPherson's Ridge and Herr's Ridge. The Rosensteel Collection is arguably the most famous collection of Gettysburg relics that has ever existed. John Rosensteel opened his Round Top Museum of Gettysburg artifacts in 1888. The collection, which grew in size as a variety of local collections were acquired, became the nucleus of the Electric Map Museum collection and ultimately the Gettysburg National Park Visitor Center collection. I will include a provenance letter.
