Original Civil War bullet recovered on the Codori Farm Gettysburg battlefield. The Codori Farm is just south of Gettysburg on the east side of Emmitsburg Road. It was the scene of heavy fighting on July 2nd and was at the center of Pickett’s Charge on July 3rd. The farmhouse was there at the time of the battle, although a two story brick addition was added to its rear in 1877. The current barn is a replacement for the original that was torn down in 1882. It was estimated that over 500 Confederate soldiers were buried on the farm after the battle. The eastern end of the property in an area called Codori Thicket there was the gallant charge of the famed 1st Minnesota. The unit’s flag fell five times and rose again each time. The 47 survivors rallied back to General Hancock under the senior surviving officer, Captain Nathan S. Messick. The 83.1 percent casualty rate stands to this day as the largest loss by any surviving military unit in U.S. history during a single day’s engagement. Bullet Will vary from the one in the photo.
