Bullet recovered at the Antietam Cornfield, with history (SOLD)

Out of Stock


Product Description

This is another nice item being offered, it is a .58 caliber 3-ring fired Minie ball. It was recovered in October, 2002 in Antietam at the Wilson Farm. It was found by Richard Fraley, who had permission to hunt the farm. The Wilson Farm is a triangular area of private property bordered by the Cornfield Road, Old Hagerstown Pike and the Smoketown Road. This area, which directly bordered Miller’s Cornfield and is positioned between the Dunker Church and that field, was the scene of intense fighting throughout the morning of September 17th.

It is rare to have so many details on an artifact, but Fraley was very meticulous on recording his finds. Whether this bullet ever found its target will never be known, but it is truly a part of history from one of the most famous Civil War battlefields. (SOLD)
