Sale 38 Lot 114

A fine Revolutionary war relic, a pair of spurs recovered at Mount Independence, Vermont, each 3 1/2" wide and 4 1/2" long with the remnants of the pointed wheels at the ends of the spurs, and original buckles, little corrosion and varnished for appearance and protection. In 1776, the military complex at Mount Independence was one of the largest communities in North America. On July 5, 1777 the site was evacuated when British Gen. John Burgoyne's forces overwhelmed the area. British and German forces remained at Mount Independence until November when they burned and destroyed the site after learning of Burgoyne's surrender at Saratoga.
Estimate $ 200-300
