But it's a piece of wood stained with blood from the house where General Sickles had his leg amputated at the Battle of Gettysburg. You know, I mean, say what you will about him-- RICK: He gave his life. [laughs] He did give his life. [laughter] General Sickles was a corps commander during the Battle of Gettysburg, the most bloody battle on North American soil. Sickles lost his leg, because it was hit by a cannonball. I'm asking 4,000. I always come when I want to raise money to buy another artifact. RICK: I mean, this is really neat. I know before the whole leg thing in Gettysburg, Sickles became kind of infamous for killing a guy that was his wife's lover. ERIK: General Sickles was one of the more colorful characters of the Civil War, especially the Battle of Gettysburg. The big blunder was he moved his forces out further than he should have, and they got slaughtered out there. And that's when he had his leg hit by the cannonball. Then he had his leg packed up. And it was sent down to the Army Medical Museum, and is actually there today. RICK: Cool. Most items from the Civil War are highly collectible, especially if they're connected to Gettysburg. But I have to admit, this thing is a little out there. Sort of like General Sickles. And this is the floorboards from the medical hospital? ERIK: No, no. This is the floorboard from the Daniel Shaefer farm. There's a quote in here from Sickles saying he did go to that house. We know for a fact that he did recuperate there. And we know for a fact that it was an army hospital and there were a lot of amputations there. And we also know for a fact that this is human blood on here because I tested it. So you don't know if it's actually his blood. ERIK: There's no way to tell if it's actually Sickles' blood. OK. I mean, it's interesting-- I mean, the whole Sickles thing-- but we really can't tie the wood to Sickle, really. Except for that's where he was. I just don't see anybody buying it. ERIK: Anything from the Battle of Gettysburg is a good piece. It's a board from an army hospital during the Civil War. I mean, an important-- Battle of Gettysburg. Battle of Gettysburg and everything, but-- dude, I wish I could do business with you. I just don't think-- it's going to be too tough to sell. I'm sorry, dude. All right. RICK: It's not for me. OK. All right, have a good one, man. OK. Sometimes he buys and sometimes he doesn't. Next time Rick sees me, I'm going to have something that's going to blow him away.
