NEW ITEMS WERE ADDED ON JANUARY 15TH – INCLUDING ARTIFACTS FROM GETTYSBURG, ANTIETAM, SALEM’S CHURCH, THE WILDERNESS AND ANCIENT ROMAN ARTIFACTS THAT WERE RECOVERED FROM AN ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITE IN ENGLAND!

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.

Product Details
A piece of campfire lead and a quartz arrowhead (not in great condition, but quartz points are desirable) that were recovered from the Garthright House on the Cold Harbor Battlefield, probably in the early 1960s. These artifacts come out of an old Pennsylvania collection where the relics were neatly separated and identified with typed labels. The Garthright House, which sits about 1/2 mile away from the modern Cold Harbor Visitor Center, was the site of a Union Hospital during the 1864 battle. Over a hundred men were buried in the front yard before being reinterred in the National Cemetery. A provenance letter will be included.
