An unexploded artillery shell that probably came from the Civil War's Battle of Gettysburg was found on the battlefield Wednesday, a spokesman for military park said Thursday.
The shell was found near Little Round Top, a hill that was the site of fierce fighting during the three-day battle in July 1863 between the Union and Confederate armies in southern Pennsylvania.
The area has been undergoing an 18-month rehabilitation project and has been closed to the public since July. The shell was reportedly destroyed by a military ordnance disposal team.
