Confederate Shipwreck Artifact

Southern Pine Pitch Resin

Each piece will have variance in size, shape, etc. 

 

Salvaged from the wreck of the CSS Nashville Confederate Navy Warship, Blockade Runner and Privateer destroyed by enemy fire, 28 February 1863 near the Georgia Coast.

 

Notes: Pine pitch was the superglue of its day with thousands of applications. Because pitch was so useful, examples are extremely rare making this shipwreck discovery among some of the only surviving samples from the Civil War.
