    Description

    Early Gettysburg Battlefield Relic Presentation, doubtless the most unusual we've ever seen with the artifacts mounted on a color lithographed board, with wood border, for the "Parlor Game Battle of Gettysburg", probably C. 1890. The entire perimeter of the 29" square board covered with artifacts. Includes large pieces of wood with bullets imbedded, one with period ink tag "Seminary Ridge", a large piece of case shot, stud back oval US buckle, buttons bullets etc. Also a M1842 bayonet, grape shot and bullets with period ink tag, "Grape shot from Hancock's front/Bayonet from Sickle's front/Bullets from first day's fight". The game board shows landmarks on the field with a detailed history of the battle. A most impressive presentation and absolutely unique.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
