    Gettysburg Relics. First- a battle-scarred portion of a tree 15" x 6" that has been hit four times! Two round balls, one sharps carbine bullet, and what appears to be a small piece of shrapnel. The tag (modern) states "Culps Hill Gettysberg, 1863 - This tree bears evidence of the heavy fighting on Culp's Hill July 2 and 3, 1863. It has been struck four times". Wood has been varnished to preserve from flaking.

    Secondly- three excavated plates: a U.S. box plate (no hooks), a breastplate (missing some lead) and a U.S. oval buckle (hooks present, missing some lead). All three plates are rough but have a pleasing green patina so common of Gettysburg area dug plates.
