Antique Glorieta Civil War New Mexico Battlefield Dug Up War Axe Knife 1860s For Sale

Here is a pretty unique item .. has a stiff 13” iron blade (16 1/2" overall) and was, I believe used on the end of a wood axe like handle. Hand forged. The piece was dug up 40 years on the Glorieta Civil War battlefield (13 miles east of Santa Fe.). Did the Confederates use it as a war axe or was it a farm tool that was lost at another time. Wish I knew. Pitted but still very solid. The Battle of Glorieta Pass, fought from March 26 to 28, 1862 in northern New Mexico Territory, was the decisive battle of the New Mexico Campaign during the American Civil War. Dubbed the "Gettysburg of the West", it was intended as the killer blow by Confederate forces to break the Union possession of the West along the base of the Rocky Mountains. It was fought at Glorieta Pass in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains in what is now New Mexico, and was an important event in the history of the New Mexico Territory in the American Civil War. Santa Fe collection. Payment is due within 3 days or I may re-list the piece! Study the pictures before offerding, and ask questions if you are unclear about anything, be sure item is what you want before purchasing, because I DO NOT take returns. We described things as best we can but we are not experts in every field. You may know more about the item then we do. You are the judge as to quality and value. I try to list several new items every few days, so keep checking my listings that include many early Cowboy, Cowgirl and Mexican pieces selling all the time. I’m located in Santa Fe.
