Hi there! Welcome to Civil War Shot and Shell Relics website. My name is Chris Harwick I am very excited to offer you quality Civil War items and relics. I have wanted to open my own relic buisness ever since I was 13 years old when I stepped into my very first civil war shop. So here we are! I have been an avid collector for the past 25 years and a relic hunter for the past 21. So whether you are new to civil war collecting or have been doing it most of your life we hope you enjoy our site as much as we enjoyed putting it together and continue adding items.
