Description:Nice gavel sold in souvenir shops at Lookout Mountain, the name of which is carved into the handle. I think the bullet in the gavel head appears to have been placed there when it was made for tourist appeal.

These early souvenirs are really cool and form a whole collecting niche unto themselves. Back in the day, going to Civil War battlefields was a big excursion and families built entire vacations around the trips.
