Those aren't termites in that tree

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (AP) - August 10, 2011

Workers at the Gettysburg National Military Park were cutting up a fallen tree, when their chain saw struck bullets.

Park officials say the oak tree was probably 250 years old.

Bullet-finds at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, are a rarity these days.

The key Civil War battle was fought there in 1863.

Officials say bullet-containing sections of the tree will be preserved and added to the park's museum.
