#14910 - Bent and Broken Confederate Bayonet Wilderness
This is a dug Confederate Enfield bayonet that was dug at The Wilderness years ago. Private land with permission. It saw some type of direct conflict for it's tip is bent and broken off, which takes a heck of a lotta force for a bayonet. Since the scrub brush caught fire and caused a huge conflagration, killing many, it is possible that the heat softened the tip so that it became bent. Personally, I think a wagon or cannon wheel rode over it, because the socket is also crushed flat... No markings. Has overall surface pitting but solid and not flaking. Overall about 12 3/4". Comes with its old tag identifying The Wilderness as site. Cool relic of actual warfare!
