Framed Civil War Bullet Display Containing 15 Different Excavated Bullets
This outstanding and beautiful framed display contains 15 different Civill War bullets excavated in the Northern Virginia area. This is the second of two similar displays I created .Most of these were "dropped" and not shot. Over 1,000 different bullets were used during the Civil War. Often those excavating Civil War sites will find large quantities of unused or "dropped" bullets. The reason for so many of these dropped bullets is that the suppliers of ammunition would often send runners ahead of those troopps and those runners would drop numerous bullets for the soldiers to pick up and use as they moved forward.
I have created two of these displays. This one includes: a CSA Buck and Ball, a .58 cal Spencer, .56 cal Colt Revolving Rifle, .52 cal Sharps Ringtail, .58 cal Minie, .54 cal Musket, .54 cal Starr, .54 cal Cosmopolitan, .69 cal 3-Ring, .58 cak Enfield, .54 cal Joslyn Carbine, .69 cal Musket, .58 cal Williams I, .58 cal Williams II and .58 cal Williams III. All are mounted and described on a discriptive backing and in a 5" x 7" frame.
