Our next show will not be Gettysburg, but instead will be the Richmond Show the weekend of November 17-18. We are sorry not to be able to make G-burg, but really looking forward to Richmond.

We still have some electronic orders that do not get delivered via the website. We think it is a Captcha issue so please check that part of the inquiry form. If you do not receive a response from us quickly on an inquiry about an item we have listed, however, please email us.

Description:I acquired this one from Keith Kenerly after he photographed it for his upcoming book, Lee's Thunderbolts. He has records of these being made in Virginia, but I won't steal his thunder by posting more of the information. He may have provided me with more detailed recovery information and I will look it up to see if I can find it as it has been in my collection for the last 2-3 years.

Keith just got back to me on this and wrote:

"This is from New Port News Va. Fired into the U.S. Lines. Ordered & made for the State of Virginia in the State of Va., just before the war broke out."
