On this page I have featured some of the unique and one of a kind pieces from my Civil War and Post War Confederate relics and artifacts collection. I hope you enjoy them. I will be adding more items regularly so please go to the contact page and drop me an email and I will send you a note when I do.
Confederate Relic from the Civil War battle of Lookout Mountain Tennessee. This gavel was made from a tree with a 3 ring minnie ball imbedded in the side of it. It is marked on one side Lookout Mt and 1863 on the other, The handle is marked "Made by Em Lively a Confederate" Since we lost that battle I would think that E Lively found this tree at a reunion or visit to the battlefield and then carved this gavel. There are 18 different E Lively's listed and 2 of them were at Lookout Mountain. This is a VERY rare piece of Confederate Civil War history.
