Click on an image to enlarge
This is a shell that you don't see offered very often these days! It is 1/2 of an original Confederate manufactured Short pattern 3 inch Broun pattern rifled cannon shell. This is the pattern that is illustrated on page #132 of the 1993 edition of the Dickey & George artillery shell book. The shell itself measures 7-1/2 inches in height. This is 1/2 of the original shell which makes a wonderful display and is a great way to show your friends how these projectiles work. The fuse hole at the top of the shell has part of the wooden style time fuse holder remaining. Another thing that is special about this shell still retains the original copper band sabot at the base. You can still see the lathe marks from the factory finishing impressed into the copper. It is also the version that has the small slits in the copper to allow the cannon blast fire to reach the fuze more easily. This and all of our artillery pieces have been disarmed for safety and preservation. The verbal history that accompanied the shell is that it was found at High Bridge, Virginia. The Battle of High Bridge refers to two engagements fought on April 6, 1865, and April 7, 1865, near the end of the Appomattox Campaign of the American Civil War about 4 miles (6.4 km) northeast of Farmville, Virginia. The first battle is often the one identified as the Battle of High Bridge. This is a great Confederate made half artillery shell.
