MS 1. Chickamauga Battlefield War Log fashioned into a Writing Desk Ornament with Inkwell.

Chickamauga Battlefield Park served as the site of Camp Thomas during the Spanish American War as well as headquarters of the 6th US Cavalry. Later it was a training camp for US soldiers in WW I and II. This souvenir inkwell stand was apparently made from items found in or near the Black Branch of Chickamauga Creek. Vines are used as the base and a “War Log” containing a fragment of an exploded 12 lb. Spherical Shell is the centerpiece. There are various Civil War and Spanish-American War relics attached throughout by small nails. Written on a horseshoe mounted in place behind the inkwell is “ONE LITTLE DROP OF INK HAS MADE A MILLION MEN THINK”. This is an impressive souvenir from the reunion era ca, 1900.

Dan Wingate Bullet Collection

We are offering several really rare and unusual bullets from a 40 year collection. Dan Wingate is well known by many of my fellow relic purveyors. One of the nicest and most unassuming people you will ever meet. He is a beekeeper in rural North GA. and I always remember him as coming to the deep south shows seeking the rarest and most unusual variants of American Civil War bullets. He also collected carved bullets and oddities. I want to give Dan acknowledgement for this fine collection. I have never seen one more comprehensive in scope with such high quality specimens. The variety of American Civil War Ammunition is bewildering, particularly of the Confederacy. Fortunately we have the elementary school primer McKee and Mason’s “Civil War Projectiles” reference book as well as the scholarly and exhaustively researched volumes of Dean and Jim Thomas’ “Round Ball to Rim Fire” . Even with these resources, there are many bullet types still unlisted and unknown with new ones being discovered to this day.
