A00815 - 3in Confederate Boureletted Read Shell from Petersburg
Item Number: A00815
Item Title: 3in Confederate Boureletted Read Shell from Petersburg
Shipping: Not included
Location Recovered: Petersburg
Description:I got this directly from the digger who dug it from the Confederate lines West of the City on private property with permission. The recovery location has since been donated to make a park for Dinwiddie County, but was in private hands back when this shell was dug. Unfired and abandoned when the lines collapsed in April 1865.
