Civil War Soldier’s Skull Auction Cancelled, Burial Planned

Following major protests, the civil war soldier’s skull auction, which was to be held at Gettysburg, is now cancelled, and the remains are to be donated for burials with honors.

The auction of the skull had been listed by Estate Auction Co. Of Hershey, which drew protests from the US National Park Service in Gettysburg and many other regions.

Following the outrage, the listing was removed from the public auction website, and was replaced by the following statement- “At the auction company’s request, it remains as part of the catalog due to its historical value.”

The foundation claimed that the auction organizers were apparently overwhelmed by the outcry from the concerned citizens.

Superintendent at Gettysburg National Military Park, Ed Clark, commented “to honor what is very likely an American veteran and have his final resting place recognized.”

According to the auction site, the civil war soldier’s skull was found in 1949 as the garden was being tilled on Benner Farm in Gettysburg, along with some notarized and handwritten documents around 2 miles north of the area.

The resources claim that the area where these ancient remains were found also held a hospital during the war.

The auction company hoped that the skull would sell for between $50,000 and $250,000.
