Carved Bullets
Item #: jsm 10
Click on an image to enlarge
Yet another group of carved bullets from Virginia Civil War winter camps. While not as profound as some, each relic in this group represents idle time spent by a Civil War soldier who whiled away the hours with a pocketknife and a few lead bullets. One has a small nail pounded through it for an inexplicable purpose. Another bears sharp cuts--idle whittling or is it a chess piece? The two flattened minies were most likely checker pieces. Another appears to be an unfinished anatomical piece. All in all, interesting testimonies to the drugery of camp life in the 1860s and to the ingenuity of American soldiers of the Blue and Gray. Each piece is reasonable priced at $10.00.
