    We Found a Virgin Civil War Site...And We Can Prove It

    Civilman and I did some research with the Civil War Atlas
    and Google Earth. We were looking for a site that may have
    been overlooked for all of these years of people hunting up here
    at Antietam.
    We Found a site that looked promising, so we went this morning at
    5:45 to hit it and just "check it out".
    We hiked in and started finding bullets right away. My XLT was singing!!!
    Things were lookinggood! By 8:45 I had found my first US belt plate. YESSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!
    Before the day was over, I had found the Belt Plate, TWO Eagle buttons
    (I have never found anything but flat buttons), Two Washington Arsenal
    bullets, a Williams Cleaner WITH the zinc still in it (another first), Three
    pulled bullets, and a Tompion With the leather still attached!
    This was by far the BEST Civil War hunt I have ever had!!!
    Thanks for looking!

    Dam Dude; that is awesome!
    Research does work!

    Is the break in the belt plate enviromental or war induced?

    How close to Antietam are you? Be careful. Isn't it a Federal Historic Landmark? Don't go to jail!

    I'm not much of a relic guy, but a site like that could very well get me addicted to relic hunting quickly!!

    Those are great finds...hope you get to go back and find many more goodies.

    WOW! Nice work, and glad to see its been there waiting for you all this time. A very smart man told me that 90% of this hobby is research, I guess he was right!

    Re: We Found a Virgin Civil War Site...And We Can Prove It

    How close are you guys to Leesburg, VA? The battle of Ball's Bluff? I have a thought or two on where to recover a few hundred muskets..... maybe. I'm serious! I've been there and done some research but I don't live in the area. No way to follow up. Check out my profile and send an e-mail. I'll tell you what I got. Or no. That's up to you. BTW, good work!

    How much are finds like yours usually worth. I find a few civil war finds and I am just wondering. I find mostly bullets and little things. How much do the belt buckles fetch, what about the buttons I would love to find some stuff like that. Awesome finds.
