Campfire Melted Civil War Bullet

 

This rare example of a partially melted bullet from the Civil War. As soldiers would sit around the campfire, they would do repairs, play cards and clean their rifles, on occasion a bullet would end up in the fire. This is one of those bullets. 

 

** The American Civil War **

The American Civil War was a civil war in the United States fought between the Union and the Confederacy. The central cause of the war was the status of slavery, especially the expansion of slavery into territories acquired as a result of the Louisiana Purchase and the Mexican–American War. On the eve of the Civil War in 1860, four million of the 32 million Americans were enslaved black people, almost all in the South.
