Civil War artillery shell hit by shovel during recovery.

This rare civil war artillery shell was hit with a shovel during the recovery. It is a rare Federal Sawyer bolt fired by only one unit during the American Civil War used to disable confederate cannons. It was fired at the Battle of Port Hudson by the 2nd Vermont Light Artillery. It was recovered almost 3 feet deep with a Minelab Equinox 800 metal detector.
