Thanks, I have a bullet that was passed down from a well known family and it's history from the small envlope it was kept in said it was the bullet that caused the mortal wound of General Paul J. Sommes (sic) July 2nd at the Wheatfield.
The bullet is fired (not dug) and has some dammage at the nose. I have been collecting Civil War relics for over thirty years and have hundreds of them so I know what I am looking at. I checked it out and it looks like a Spencer to me. Yes I know Semmes' Brigade faced Infantry and Infantry weapons...that is why I asked if any Spencers were on the field that day.
