    Description

    Relics: Lee's Headquarters Gettysburg, Culp's Hill, and Little Round Top, Three Relics from the Collection of J. S. Reigart. The piece from General Robert E. Lee's Gettysburg headquarters is a 1" high and 1" in diameter round box with a fitted lid. Both the base and the lid have paper labels that read, "Head Quarters of Gen. Lee, Gettysburg". In the box are two brittle 19th century newspaper clippings related to the house owned by Thaddeus Stevens and occupied by the "Widow" Mary Thompson at the time of the battle. The other two relics, a bullet and wooden base are also from Gettysburg. The paper label on the wood base identifies them as coming from Culp's Hill (the base) and the mounted bullet as coming from Little Round Top. The label also mentions two other bullets (now missing) that were mounted atop the Little Round Top bullet. The relics are in excellent condition.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
