.69 Caliber Ammo Box
at the Civil war Naval Museum in Columbus Georgia
Charlie McCulloh & Glenn Milner
Here is a dimensioned drawing and some construction notes for the .69 Cal. Box . The top to the original is missing. The museum has replicated the box and uses a standard constructed ammo box top in its reproduction. Hopefully this drawing by Glenn Milner, these photos and construction notes will allow interested parties to reproduce this box.
Interesting features of this box are the tongue &
groove pieced bottom that the sides are attached on, and the non-dove tailed
1000 (above handle)
BUCK & BALL
CARTRIDGES (below Handle)
Color of the box appears to be Pantone 19-0608 TP
Black Olive, Olive Noire
This is just one of the many fine items in the collection of the Civil War Naval Museum. Again, I strongly urge you to visit this beautiful new facility if you have not done so.
