I volunteer part time at the Talbot County Historical Society catalogueing articles, photos, etc. which individuals have donated. An individual recently donated what she said was a device for making civil war bullets. First, I don't believe the box containing tools, various circular molds, etc. was authenic but most probably a reproduction. Secondly, though my knowledge of armaments/ammunition is limited, I don't believe that the majority of bullets were manufactured, i.e. minie balls, etc. I do know that bullets were made by molds by revolutionary and war of 1812 soldiers. Any comments. I have mentioned to the curator that she should take pictures of the divice and I would share them with the board members here.
