Product Description

CIVIL WAR HOSPITAL BULLET, PEA RIDGE, ARKANSAS
HAVE YOU EVER HEARD SOMEONE SAY "I'LL HAVE TO BITE THE BULLET"? DID YOU EVER KNOW WHERE THIS EXPRESSION FIRST ORIGINATED? MANY YEARS AGO DURING THE TERRIBLE EARLY WARS WHEN THE PHYSICIANS DIDN'T HAVE ANYTHING TO DEADEN THE PAIN DURING AN OPERATION NEAR THE BATTLEFIELD, THE DOCTOR WOULD HAND THE SOLDIER A BULLET TO HOLD BETWEEN HIS TEETH. I BELIEVE THIS BULLET IS RATHER RARE. IT IS CALLED A "HOSPITAL BULLET". THERE ARE MANY TEETH MARKS ON THIS BULLET. I BELIEVE THEY ARE HUMAN TEETH BITES. IT WAS A 69 CALIBER MUSKET BALL. THIS BULLET IS FROM THE PEA RIDGE, ARKANSAS AREA BUT NOT DIRECTLY FROM THE PARK. YOU WILL RECEIVE A COPY OF THIS BATTLE OF MARCH 7-8, 1862.

YOUR COMPLETE SATISFACTION IS GUARANTEED.
