This 0.22 caliber bullet was recovered from a tree at the Grinter Place site in Wyandotte County. The slug was discovered by a site administrator who related: "Bullet found about 4' high in the heart of the Cottonwood tree at the south corner of the Grinter property. Four or five other bullets are still embedded in the wood." The Grinter Place is a two-story brick home overlooking the Delaware Crossing on the Kansas River, and is now in the National Register of Historic Places. Moses and Annie Grinter, the latter was a member of the Lenape (Delaware) tribe, owned and operated a ferry and trading post there. Grinter Place was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1971.

Date: 1855-1950
