Brass Spoon from Combination Eating Utensil, dug Chantilly, VA (SOLD)

Out of Stock

$0.00

Product Description

This is another nice piece being offered, it is a brass spoon from the popular knife/fork/spoon combination eating utensil. It measures approximately 3 ½” x 1 ½”. It was recovered by Mike Rasmussen in the early 1980s at the site of the Chantilly, Virginia battlefield.

The Battle of Chantilly (or Ox Hill, the Confederate name) took place on September 1, 1862, in Fairfax County, Virginia. General Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson's corps of the Army of Northern Virginia attempted to cut off the line of retreat of the Union Army of Virginia following the Second Battle of Bull Run but was attacked by two Union divisions. During the ensuing battle, Union division commanders Isaac Stevens and Philip Kearny were both killed but the Union attack halted Jackson's advance.

Today there is very little left of the Chantilly battlefield, so called “progress” in that area of Virginia during the last 30+ years just swallowed it up, giving little thought to its historic significance. Even years earlier there was very few artifacts coming out of Chantilly, so any surviving pieces are rare to come by. Being made of brass, this spoon remained in excellent condition. In my book “Battle of Gettysburg – The Relics, Artifacts & Souvenirs”, I show several of these eating utensils (see pictures). (FREE SHIPPING)
