Click on an image to enlarge
Relic Pyramid standing approximately 50 inches high. This one is attributed to O.T. Reilly who collected relics from the Antietam and South Mountain Battlefields in Maryland. Reilly was born in Keedysville, Maryland and was said to have witnessed the battle of Antietam when he was 5 years old. At the age of 15 he became a Battlefield guide and was well known as offering tours of Antietam. Among his customers were many of the old veterans and also famous generals such as Longstreet, Hooker and Burnside. Around the turn of the century O.T. Reilly opened a shop and small museum on main street in Sharpsburg where he sold relics, battlefield tour guides and post cards. Often these pyramids were sold to various GAR post and museums. Examples could be found in several prominent Gettysburg collections such as the Rosensteel museum and the Scoper House museum in Boonsboro, Maryland. This particular one was found many years ago in Indiana and more than likely came from a GAR post. Loaded with plenty of relics visible in the pictures.
