    Gettysburg Battlefield Pick-Up Confederate Cartridge Box With Old Ink Museum Tag

    $3,000.00
    Gettysburg Battlefield Pick-Up Confederate Cartridge Box With Old Ink Museum Tag. This cartridge box started out as a Federal box. It was altered for Confederate use. The plate was removed and the flap was cut for easy access and loading. A tab was left at the edge to open and close quickly. A typical clever Confederate modification. The box also has large block initials carved into the back. Large block initials are also a common Confederate addition. Most Union Officers banned this practice and fined their soldiers for doing it. The box is in good condition, the leather is a bit stiff but not bad for an early battlefield pick-up. The box has an old ink museum/collection tag that says "CSA Knapsack From Battlefield Of Gettysburg". There is also a small collection number ink tag. Early Confederate Gettysburg battlefield pick-up artifacts are very rare and desirable. With old ink museum/collection tags they are even more so. Former collection of Author/Historian James L. Swanson.  Complete museum documentation (COA) provided.

Museum documentation included. Jennie Wade heroine of the battle of Gettysburg. About 8:30 a.m. on July 3, Wade was kneading dough for bread when a Minié ball traveled through the kitchen door of her sister’s house and hit her. It pierced her left shoulder blade, went through her heart, and ended up in her corset. She was killed instantly. While it is uncertain which side fired the fatal shot, some authors have attributed it to an unknown Confederate sharpshooter. Shortly afterward, three Union soldiers discovered the body and told the rest of the family. They temporarily buried Wade’s body in the back yard of the McClellan house, in a coffin originally intended for a Confederate officer. In January 1864, her body was relocated to the cemetery of the German Reformed Church on Stratton Street. On July 4, her mother baked 15 loaves of bread with the dough Wade had kneaded. Jennie also gave retreating Union soldiers water on July 1st 1863. The bullet in this display was found on Cemetery Hill. The Jennie Wade house is on Cemetery Hill. This relic is certified by The Gettysburg Museum of History. Museum documentation (COA) included.
