Civil War “Bullet-in-Wood” recovered from the Wilderness, VA Battlefield (SOLD,BG)

Out of Stock


Product Description

This is another nice piece being offered, it is what is referred to as a “Bullet-in-Wood”. It is an Enfield Bullet, and it is tightly embedded into a piece of wood 6 ½” x 1 ¾”. This was recovered many years ago at the Wilderness, Virginia battlefield by long-time digger Dennis Cox.

The Battle of the Wilderness was fought May 5–7, 1864. It was the first battle of Lt. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant's 1864 Virginia Overland Campaign against Gen. Robert E. Lee and the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia. Both armies suffered heavy casualties, an indication of a bloody war of attrition by Grant against Lee's army and, eventually, the Confederate capital, Richmond, Virginia. The battle was tactically inconclusive, as Grant disengaged and continued his offensive.

Overall, this is a nice solid piece, not one of the put-together with glue examples. A light coat of varnish was applied at one time for preservation.
