This large cowbell was recovered several decades ago by a local Virginia relic hunter who's accompanying label indicates that he recovered it from "Bullet Hill" Farm in Columbia, VA. Columbia is a small community in Fluvanna County and was part of "Sheridan's Raid" in March of 1865 when he and his troops burned the locks and damaged the canal along the James River from New Market to Columbia. Though the label indicates "Brass Cowbell" it is actually constructed of iron. Its clapper is present and swings freely. The rusty iron is sturdy and at some point, it appears to have been very lightly clear coated. It measures approximately 6 inches in length. The bell opening measures approximately 2-1/4 x 3-5/8 inches. Its clapper is 1 inch in diameter. Though not a military issue item, this sizable cowbell still sounds great and will be an excellent addition to any excavated Civil War relic collection.
