Bullet recovered in the East Woods of Antietam, October 1954


Product Description

This is another nice piece being offered, it is a .69 caliber ball. It was recovered in October 1954 from the area of the Antietam battlefield known as the “East Woods”.

The Battle of Antietam was a scene of chaos and violence on September 17th, 1862, especially in the “East Woods” – where these bullets were 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 is a nice piece that was a witness to the bloodiest day in American history.
