Civil War Musket Wiper (Worm), dug at a SC camp


Product Description

This is another neat little grouping being offered, it is a musket wiper along with some fired percussion caps. It was recovered in a Union camp in South Carolina, near the Salkehatchie River, just outside Yemassee.

It was at the crossing of the Salkehatchie River on a remote earthen causeway that Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman's Union army encountered the most significant resistance in its march through South Carolina. Dug in behind earthen fortifications on the far bank of the river, 1,200 Confederate soldiers were ready to take on the 5,000-strong Union troops to try to stop them from advancing on Columbia.

These wipers screwed onto the ramrod for removing jammed bullets and debris from the musket barrel. This is a nice little inexpensive grouping.
