Product Description

This is another nice item being offered, it is the remains of a Bormann artillery fuse. Typically, these fuses would be screwed into the tops of 12-pounder spherical shells (see pictures) causing the shell to explode. This piece was recovered in the 1960s on private property on the Mumma Farm at the Antietam Battlefield in Maryland. 

Located near the center of the Antietam Battlefield, the Mumma Farm (see period picture) was a scene of chaos and violence on September 17th, 1862. The farm was burned in the early morning of the battle by Confederate Brigadier General Ripley to prevent its use as a sharpshooter's refuge by Union troops. Today, the Mumma Farm is no longer a private residence, though it was until the 1970s. It comes in the glass top display case pictured.
