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.

Location Recovered: Augusta Arsenal dump site

Description:This cannon ball was recovered from one of the places where the contents of the Augusta Arsenal were dumped after it was surrendered. This one was in the process of being completed, but the powder cavity had yet to be drilled out when production stopped. Also, it was filled with salvaged bullets as lead round balls were in extreme short supply to the Confederacy by the war's end. The half shell is no longer mounted on the wood plaque shown in the photos. A really neat end of war time capsule.
