  4. Very nice condition, excavated, 12 pound solid shot cannonball.  This cannonball was recovered about 40 years ago on what at the time was known as the "Burton Farm" at the 2nd day fighting of the Battle of Nashville.  It has been cleaned, coated, and is ready for display.--$195.SOLD

  5. Very nice condition, Confederate 12 pound size, wood drive-in fuse type cannonball that was recovered over 30 years ago from the King farm located just in rear of where Mendenhall had all the Union cannons masked for the Confederate charge by Breckenridge on January 2, 1863, here at Stones River.  In this charge, the Confederates ran into 58 cannons that were hidden just out of view, and in this charge over 1800 Confederates were killed in just one hour.  This is known to history as Breckenridge's Charge at Stones River, and according to folklore, caused Stones River to run red for an hour.  The cannonball is disarmed, cleaned, coated, and ready for display.--$295.SOLD

  7. Excavated, 12 pound size, Bormann fused, Civil War cannon ball.  This ball was recovered near Spring Hill, Tennessee, on the way to the Battle of Franklin.  When recovered, this cannon ball had an open fuse hole, and we have included a correct Bormann fuse to display with the cannon ball.  Very nice relic, uncleaned, just as dug.--$275.

Beautiful condition, virtually non-excavated, quite rare, Confederate "side-loader" brass time fused, case shot, 12 pound cannon ball.  This rare Confederate ball was found being used as a barn door counter-weight in a log barn located near Petersburg, Virginia.  You couldn't ask for a nicer condition, rare, Confederate side-loader cannon ball.--$450.SOLD
