    Very neat. How did you acquire them? Did you put the collection together yourself?

    I go to Gettysburg three times a year. All are from old Gettysburg families collections with provenance. Rosensteel, Breem, Cullison, and Geiselman are some of the families.

    Awesome that they’re not just from “Gettysburg” generally, but from specific places on the field.

    Many of the relics taken from the battlefield were cataloged by those finding them.

    Love the relics and thought I would show you the box that I picked up whilst in Gettysburg. The small piece of rock was given to me by a friend it is from Devils Den and have since decided it belongs back where it was taken, my excuse to come back I guess.
