It was recovered from a Civil War site in the area of the Seven Days Battles which were a series of battles occurring June 25 to July 1, 1862 near Richmond, Virginia. The deformed bullet has a grey patina and appears to be .58 caliber in size. The decayed wood is very old and light-weight. Its overall weight is approximately 1-1/4 ounces and it measures approximately 1-3/8 x 3 inches. No repairs.
