Item #: WR753
Click on an image to enlarge
This is a group of eleven relics recovered from a Continental Army campsite outside of Annapolis, Maryland. The group consists of three flat buttons, a piece of pottery, four iron square nails, a musket ball and two pieces of melted lead. Of the three flat buttons, only the small one still has the shank. None of the buttons has a visible back mark. The piece of pottery has been glazed on one side, and was decorated on that side. The musket ball looks to be for a pistol, the other two pieces of lead are melted and I can't determine what they were originally. The nails vary in size, but are all about the same length of two inches. While there were no Revolutionary War battles fought near Annapolis, there certainly was plenty of troop movement through the area. 1200 Continental Light Infantryman under the command of LaFayette camped near Annapolis from March to April of 1781. The relics come in a 8 1/4" X 6 1/4" riker case. These relics were once in the collection of Deb Sprouse, and are now available to be in yours!
