Gettysburg Relics of the Confederate Dead at Pickett's Charge | American Artifact Episode 28

When visiting Gettysburg, the national cemetery isn’t the only place where the dead of the battle are buried. Many still lie in the unmarked graves where they buried in the summer of 1863. Unless they were accidentally dug up, that is. That is what happened to Fred Pfeffer (who also happens to be the great great grandfather of Erik Dorr) in the late 1800s. In this episode, we’re looking at some of the relics that were unearthed at the site of Pickett’s Charge, which saw some of the worst violence of the Battle of Gettysburg.
