Bullets Actually Fired By A Civil War Soldier
The American Civil War was the greatest single influence on modern day weaponry the United States has seen. The war also influenced small arms manufactures world wide. Civil War weapons saw the transition from smooth bore rifles and handguns to the rifled-barrel firearms of today. The number of small arm weapons needed to fight the war necessitated a large number of different rifles and pistols from many manufactures and in a wide variety of calibers.
Hunting and digging for bullets is not allowed on federal battle ground parks, however, they can sometimes be found, with a little luck in areas near where the large Civil War battles happened, the marching trails of the two armies, and on land where the many skirmishes were fought. Campsites of both the Confederate and Union armies are also excellent places to find bullets. A good metal detector is a great time saving tool for finding the bullets.
This large number of different small arms was a boon for Civil War bullet collectors and other Civil War memorabilia aficionados. Some people use Civil War relics as a way to make money too! You'll find Civil War Costumes offers some of the best prices on the Internet. You'll find every type, caliber, and make of dug, non-dug, field carved, and mushroom, or direct hit, bullets used in the American Civil War.
One thing a relic collector knows is that when hunting or metal detecting for relics on private land you must get permission from the land owner. You know if they are near or are an area know for having bullets they have had some bad experiences with less respectful hunters. Being polite and considerate will get the owners respect and they will be more likely to let you on their property. They might even point you in the right direction!
