We are currently looking to photograph items for our book on Antietam Relics & Artifacts. If you have some items with great provenance, we would like to photograph them for the book. We are open to all sorts of relics. With that being said, we only want items with great provenance including local paper money, artillery, buckles, bayonets, etc.

 

Antietam Field Hospital Museum Items

 

We have been getting several emails about the validity of the items from the Antietam "Field Hospital" Museum that are currently on the market. We have had several people contacting us trying to sell us such items. From the research that I have been doing on local museums for my book, I have found no evidence of this museum ever being in existence. We have tracked down every museum in the area and none of them had a concentration of medical items.  None of the locals have ever heard of this museum as well. The museum is said to have closed in the 1960's. Unfortunately, there is no record of this museum in my area. Until I can confirm the museum with ownership or get a physical address as to where it was located I will leave this up. We will continue our research for our book but will not be photographing items from this museum until provenance is fully secured. While this museum could have existed, the provenance is lacking a lot of detail in my humble opinion.

Z1903     Enfield Cartridge Box Finial

Description: Nice brass finial for the English Enfield cartridge box.

Measures Approximately 1" tall

Recovered: Hauser Farm, Sharpsburg Maryland

Price: $15.00

Z1708     Federal Three Inch Type I Dyer "Case-Shot"

Description: Here is an excavated Federal 3" Dyer "Case-Shot" that was recovered on the Western part of the Shepherdstown battlefield. This battle was the last encounter of the Maryland 1862 campaign. This particular shell has a lead cupped sabot with four flame grooves. The grooves would allow the initial flame to reach the paper time fuse, which would ultimately reach the powder charge, exploding the shell. This shell is full of lead case-shot balls. Upon exploding the iron walls would shatter raining down fragments of varying sizes as well as lead case-shot. This style of shell employed a zinc time fuse adaptor which would have held a paper time fuse within the center of the hole. This particular shell would have been fired from Ferry Hill (Home of Henry Kyd Douglas's Father) by one of the batteries under Gen. Alfred Pleasonton. He was in charge of Batteries B&L, 2nd US Artillery and Battery A, 2nd US Artillery.

Measures: 2.94" x 7"

Recovered: Battle of Shepherdstown, Va. (Now West Virginia) September 19-20, 1862

Z1707     Federal Three Inch Type I Dyer "Common Shell"

Description: Here is an excavated Federal 3" Dyer "Common Shell" that was recovered on the Western part of the Shepherdstown battlefield. This battle was the last encounter of the Maryland 1862 campaign. This particular shell has a lead cupped sabot with four flame grooves. The grooves would allow the initial flame to reach the paper time fuse, which would ultimately reach the powder charge, exploding the shell. This is a "common shell" meaning it would be full of powder and not case-shot. Upon exploding the iron walls would shatter raining down fragments of varying sizes. This style of shell employed a zinc time fuse adaptor which would have held a paper time fuse within the center of the hole. This particular shell would have been fired from Ferry Hill (Home of Henry Kyd Douglas's Father) by one of the batteries under Gen. Alfred Pleasonton. He was in charge of Batteries B&L, 2nd US Artillery and Battery A, 2nd US Artillery.

Measures: 2.94" x 7"
