Original Civil War Bullet In Wood “War Log” Recovered From A River Bed Tree Root Certified By The Gettysburg Museum Of History. A very nice and solid (not rotted) piece of hard wood tree root with a fired Civil War minie ball (bullet) embedded. You can clearly see where the wood grew around this bullet meaning this was from a living tree root not a fence post or wood from a building. The bullet was left in the root and with the sediment from the river (a very interesting battlefield anomaly) The digger left it this way and it is very interesting and a great relic! A great earlier pickup bullet in root wood. Original recovery location was not recorded, Bullets in wood are some of the most asked for Civil War relics. They are getting very difficult to find. They almost exclusively come from old collections at this point and are almost never found by relic hunters anymore. A very historic battlefield recovered relic. Found years ago in an area that was not National Park at the time. Don’t miss this unique opportunity. 100% guaranteed to be authentic Gettysburg Museum certified, museum COA provided. Also note when browsing our web site there are several pages of items, at the bottom of the list look for other page numbers. A historic museum piece, A well documented authentic example from Chickamauga.
