Carlisle. Massachusetts A new librarian on her first day on the job at the Gleason Public Library came across Civil War era ordnance while cleaning out a closet. The ordnance was reportedly part of a Gettysburg collection of material donated to the town over a year ago.
A note was included in with the ordnance that stated the items "had been examined by a munitions expert and could be live.". Concerned, the librarian contacted the police who responded with the local bomb squad.
The bomb squad removed the ordnance for disposal off-site.
