Confederate shell is a family heirloom

A Pennsylvania family has kept a 10-pound artillery shell ever since it was dug up on their property in 1917. The round was fired by McGregor's Battery, part of Confederate Gen. J.E.B. Stuart's cavalry forces that clashed with Union cavalry on June 30, 1863, in and around Hanover. The Blettner's would like to see the shell put on display, perhaps with the Gettysburg electric map that was recently purchased by a businessman for a proposed Hanover Heritage and Conference Center. • Article
