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.
