This small lead bar was collected at a site that may be the location of a camp used by General George A. Custer and the Seventh Calvary. The site is near Fort Hays in Ellis County. The bar is stamped with a partial word "LOU," advertising for the St. Louis Shot Tower Company. Bars such as this one could be melted and poured into a mold.

Date: 1869-1870
