LIVE — This live grenade was on display at The Eisenhower National Historic site.

A live grenade on display from World War II was found at The Eisenhower National Historic Site’s Museum collection in Gettysburg and destroyed.

The grenade, which was detonated in late February, was part of an exhibit entitled Eisenhower’s Leadership from Camp Colt to D-Day, according to a Facebook post Monday on the Eisenhower National Historic Site. The U.S. Army grenade, dated to 1944, was found “buried in the sand” in either Omaha Beach or Utah Beach in Normandy, France, the post reads.
