History in your home: The Civil War
A cannonball from the Battle of Gettysburg that has been in my family for, since, well, the battle. A relative who lived in Chamersburg picked it up a few days after the battle had concluded, and it has been in my family ever since. My grandfather recently gave it to me in a pink bag for Christmas.
