Description: Double cavity bullet mold for a round ball and grooved bullet.
Description: Historical Note: This bullet mold was plowed up in a field near the location of Kenney’s Fort, a stockade and block house erected in about 1839 by San Jacinto veteran Thomas Kenney and other pioneers as a refuge from the Indians who inhabited the section of land. The small fort was sixteen miles north of Austin in Williamson County, at the mouth of Dyer Branch on the south bank of Brushy Creek. The mold has a provision for round as well as long / oval bullets and appears to be from the Civil War era.
