PR Newswire

NEW BRAUNFELS, Texas, June 1, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Burley Auction Gallery will be holding a live auction of Alamo battle relics and Republic of Texas documents at its gallery on 134 Debora Dr. in New Braunfels, Tex., beginning at 10:00 a.m. CDT. Robb Burley, owner of the well-known Texas-based auction house that specializes in Western Americana and Texana, emphasized that due to COVID-19 crowd size restrictions, seating will be spread out to promote social distancing for those attending the live event. Masks and hand sanitizer will also be available.

Those unable to attend can utilize live internet bidding available through icollector.com, or through phone and absentee bidding. Details can be found at https://www.burleyauction.com/. (15%BP TX#15184.) In-person previews of items can be arranged by appointment only beginning June 1 through June 4th, and again on June 5th from noon to 6 p.m.

Bidders will be treated to Alamo battlefield relics such as cannon balls, lance tips, bullets and other items unearthed during the 2008 excavation project just outside the Alamo's north wall, at which some of the most intense battles took place.

The auction also features historic items from Gen. P.G.T. Beauregard, Confederate General in the Civil War, including family photographs and portraits, documents, signatures and books. According to Burley, one of the more distinctive items is a letter about a cholera outbreak, something he finds particularly poignant during the current global pandemic.

"It's just a great symbol of how history reminds us of our human connections over time," said Burley. "That's one of the reasons I treat it as an honor to stand before heritage items like Texana and Americana memorabilia – you truly feel a kinship with the original owners and the history behind each item."

Bidders can also vie for a collection of Confederate Civil War firearms, Bowie knives, antique Colt Single Actions and Winchester rifles, an estate collection of modern firearms and ammunition, gold and silver coins, Early American furniture & Pennsylvania pottery, a fine 18th century Chippendale chest, 1780s Philadelphia painted face grandfather clock, antique painted furniture, pewter cabinets and dry sinks, Texas furniture, Texas art and pottery, various signs, and even a fully restored 1926 Ford Model T with push-button start.
