Non-dug Civil War Artilleryman’s Fuse Gimlet


Product Description

This is another nice piece being offered, it is a non-dug Artilleryman’s Fuse Gimlet. It measures about 3 ½” long with a T-top handle that is 1 ¾” wide. It is the size often used with a 6-Pnd. Gun, 12-Pnd. Napoleon, or 10-Pnd Parrott Rifle, the most common field pieces used during the Civil War.

These gimlets are often found excavated from Civil War sites. In my book “Civil War Artillery – A Pictorial Introduction”, I have one that was found at Fredericksburg (see pictures). Also, I have one which was found at Gettysburg and was part of the Lee’s Headquarters Museum and is in my book “Battle of Gettysburg – The Relics, Artifacts & Souvenirs” (see pictures). It is in very nice condition and comes in the glass top display case pictured.
