Provenance: Lifelong Civil War Relic Collection of Dr. W Cullen Sherwood - Geologist, Historian, and Civil War Relic Hunter. Dr. Sherwood was a Geology professor with a lifelong passion for the history and material of the American Civil War. Growing up in rural Virginia his interest in Civil War Relics spanned his lifetime. He was well-known for his captivating field trips, where he would regale students with stories that linked the geologic landscape with Civil War troop movements and actions. He developed his relic collection as a true scholar, studying maps and other archival information, combined with his extensive knowledge of the capabilities of various weapons, tactics, and movements. Dr. Sherwood carefully documented all discoveries throughout his collection. These studies led Dr. Sherwood to many little-known locations, where he enjoyed meeting private landowners while asking permission to access their property. All of Dr. Sherwood’s material originated on private land. The Sherwood American Civil War Relic Collection is large and comprehensive, representing decades of careful study, a strong passion and in-depth knowledge of history.
