Location Recovered: Columbia, SC

Description:These distinctive bullets with their uncut tail sprue, are were recovered in the Congaree River where they had been tossed after Sherman's troops burned Columbia, SC to the ground. The bullets are all a bit corroded because the dump site is just downstream from a creosote plant. As a result the water burns your skin and creosote is a known carcinogen so better to get the bullet here than go swimming for another!
