Civil War artillery shell found unexploded on Gettysburg battlefield


YORK, Pa. – A Civil War artillery shell was discovered Wednesday at Gettysburg National Military Park, based on a information launch.

The unexploded ordnance was discovered on the battlefield within the space of Little Spherical High, mentioned Jason Martz, a spokesman for the park service. It dates to the Battle of Gettysburg, which was fought July 1 to July 3, 1863.

The fifty fifth Ordnance Disposal Firm (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) group from Fort Belvoir, Virginia, eliminated the shell and destroyed it off-site, the discharge says. The group gently washed off the mud so the shell might be photographed.
