American Civil War Relics (and other things of interest)

We are now set up to process all major credit cards. There is a 4% processing charge with these transactions. This is necessary due to PCI Compliance and higher fees associated with keyed in transactions via phone. Margins can also be very tight with the artifacts I offer, particularly with consignments.

 

Long Time Fort Fisher, NC. area Collection.

This fine collection is remarkable for it’s variety and early dug condition. Almost all of the items are excavated. There are items dating back to the 1600’s and quite a few rare military buttons and coins. All of these relics were dug by Ben Ingraham over many years in the vicinity of Fort Fisher, Carolina Beach, Fort Anderson, Charleston and all points in between. Fort Fisher protected the Port of Wilmington and was a major destination for Blockade Runners from England, Cuba and the Bahamas that were supplying the Confederacy throughout the American Civil War. It finally fell to the Union by assault in early 1865.

 

 

 Dean Thomas’ Artillery Shell Fragment Collection.

Dean has been digging for many years and had accumulated this box of his early finds. They all date from the late 1960’s to early 1970’s. He had meticulously labeled them all with the find site and the date. Many of them are from Gettysburg and a few from other sites like Antietam, Chancellorsville and the Wilderness. I propose to clean and coat these fragments and keep each label with them. Dean and his brother Jim are the authors of several books and own Thomas Publications which is a first class publishing house in Gettysburg, PA. They are the foremost researchers of American Civil War Small Arms Ammunition and Arsenals. I own a copy of their multi-volume series “Round Ball to Rim Fire” and highly recommend it if you are wanting to truly broaden your knowledge of the subject. They also have works pertaining to the American Revolution. I will be happy to direct you to these extremely well researched books. You can reach Dean and Jim at www.thomaspubications.com.

Richard R. Miller

We are honored to represent such a fine artist. I have seen them all and Richard is the master. His portraits are done in the classical style and are simply superb. He loves to work on Civil War subjects and offers original portraits and limited edition giclees on canvas.
