Bullet (minie Ball) In Piece Of Wood Where Gen. Sedgwick Kia At Spotsylvania Ch

Civil War Minie Ball in a Piece of a Tree from the Site where Gen. Sedgwick KIA at Spotsylvania Court House

A wonderful relic, especially if you are a devotee of the great Gen. John Sedgwick, famous leader of the renowned VI Corps. 6 in long, roughly 1-1/4 in wide at widest spot and 1-7/8 deep. A very nicel Minie ball about half exposed in a piece of southern sap pine (good and tight in the wood). The bullet is not badly deformed. You can clearly see the rings arund thesides and the cavity is intact, altho filled with resin or sap. Old paperlabel with clear ink inscription: "Bullet in hard pine. Sedgwick. Spottsylvania." On the other side is a more recent typed piece of paper: "from the Brattleboro, Vt. G.A.R. Post's Museum." The famous First Vermont Brigade was in the VI Corps and was known as"Sedgwick's Pets" since he thought so highly of them. It was Sedgwick, on the road t Gettysburg, who said the famous words, "Put the Vermonters in front and keep the column well closed up." ("Put the Vermonts in front" is still the motto of the Vt. National Guard).

Obviously, after the war, in some visit to the battlefield,a Vermont veteran wanted a momento of the site where Sedgwick was killed and cut this piece of wood and the bullet out of a tree near where the General ws killed by a Rebel sharpshooter (May 9, 1864). At some point he gave it to the G.A.R. Post in his hometown, Brattleboro, which had named its post after Sedgwick. When the Post was disbanded in the 20th century all the collection was sold at sale. This piece was given to me by an old Brattleboro resident.

There are large pieces of trees with bullets or cannon balls in them that are preserved, but they are big and awkward to display. Here is a wonderful item to add to your C.W. collection with a great background provenance. Clean with old label in excellent condition.
