Alamo cannonball
« on: June 07, 2020, 11:29:22 AM »
Yesterday in New Braunfels Texas, there was a auction of artifacts from the 1836 battle st the Alamo.  A 10 lb cannon ball sold for $17,000.  Yes, $17,000.  I saved the article but don't know how to attach it.  Google Alamo auction artifacts if you are interested in reading about it.

Those people must have thought those were Rosensteel Gettysburg relics!?!?!?!  What were they thinking?  I've got a whole shelf full of Alamo cannon balls!  ;)
Best,
