History For Sale – If You Have Deep Pockets

17 06 2007


All I can say is “WOW!!!”  Check out this auction on ebay.  In addition to lots of ID’d images, there are edged weapons, firearms, artillery, letters, flags (Custer’s guidon), clothing (a complete Zouave uniform) and other artifacts.  I’m not sure who owns this stuff (the seller is Heritage Auction Galleries), but they had to have been gathering it for many, many years, and spent many thousands of dollars.  If anyone knows more about it, let me know.  The auctions (there are actually three, with one being held live in Gettysburg) will be on 7/24-25/2007, so the link may be dead if you read this after that date.
