    Bullet-Struck Federal Box Plate from Little Round Top, a flattened Confederate .58 caliber Gardner rests snugly in the center of a US oval plate retaining both attachment loops. Professionally mounted with plaque in custom shadowbox frame. A letter of provenance accompanies the display and reads, "July 25, 1992 Gettysburg, Pa. To Whom it May Concern: I found this box plate on the back side of Round Top in July of 1973. It was struck by a Confederate bullet approximately in the center of the box plate. James E. Leech." A splendid relic from the site defended by Joshua Chamberlain's 20th Maine on July 2, 1863.
