Artifact found at Civil War site may be a 'witch bottle' belonging to a Columbia man |

Besides the bottle -- which was made in Pennsylvania between 1840 and 1860 -- archaeologists recovered a wealth of artifacts at the site: Canteen fragments, bullets, horseshoe nails, uniform buttons and ink bottle fragments, among others.
But perhaps the most tantalizing and most mysterious is the bottle, which is being stored with other artifacts for further research. The bottle is marked, "Charles Grove of Columbia, PA."
