  1. Ultra-Rare 8 Foot Chickamauga War Log that was cut during the 1880s and has remained in the immediate Chickamauga/Chattanooga area since that time.  The tree is a Dogwood measuring about a foot in diameter at the base and 6 inches or so at the top.  It is peppered with artillery fire from top to bottom, and has about 9 or 10 strikes consisting of canister and shrapnel from numerous different type shells.  This fantastic "Museum Quality" artifact has been a part of Charlie Harris's Nationally known collection for many years.  Charlie has the piece mounted on a base that will turn to view all sides, and a custom made bracket for the top, and this all goes with the War Log.  This artifact is nothing short of incredible.   Priced at less than half what I have seen other War Logs half its size priced at.--$9,850.

  2. Excavated, 20 pound size, time fused, Parrott projectile.  This shell was recovered about 30 years ago on private property at Vicksburg.  The iron remains very sound and stable with typical amount of pitting on the iron surface.  The pewter Parrott time fuse remains intact and in very nice condition.  It has been disarmed, cleaned, coated, and is ready for display.--$295.
