This item was probably picked up right after the battle. Remained in a farmhouse until early 1960's when the family put it up for sale.
THOUSANDS OF ITEMS WERE PICKED UP AFTER THE BATTLE BY LOCAL RESIDENTS, AND THOSE THAT TOOK THE TRAIN TO VISIT THE BATTLEFIELD.
i LIVED IN THE GETTYSBURG AREA DURING THE 60'S.
i WOULD LIKE TO MAKE CONTACT WITH THE 6TH. IN pENNA.
THANK YOU !!
