From an Aug. 9th news story,

Workers trimming a storm-damaged oak tree on Culp's Hill uncovered projectiles lodged in the wood. The oak was one of the few remaining trees in the park that date from the battle. Sections of the oak will be preserved and placed in the museum.



Wow, that's quite a story. Don't know if you saw my post last week, but we are heading to Gettysburg in a few weeks.

Culps Hill was the site of heavy fighting and a lot of bullets flew there. Whenever a tree "drops" in Gettysburg, it is swarmed upon because the roots often carry up long lost artifacts. I hadn't heard about them actually finding bullets in the trees. Thanks for sharing!
