Product Description

This is another nice piece, it is a Civil War artillery shell sabot which is made of brass. It is off of a 3" Conical shell. This section is marked with “East Woods / Antietam”.

The Battle of Antietam was a scene of chaos and violence on September 17th, 1862, especially in the area known as the “East Woods” – where this piece was recovered.
A soldier from the 8th Ohio Infantry (Burnside’s Corps) described the fighting in the East Woods the night before the battle:

“Nothing could have been more grand.  The red glare of flame along the Rebel line for more than a mile, the bright streams of light along the track of the shell, and the livid clouds of smoke as the shell burst in the air, constituted a spectacle brilliant beyond comparison.”

This interesting example remains in very nice condition. A great piece from a very historic area of the battlefield.
