    Welcome from Indiana. Sounds like what we all dream of. Would definately check on it and go back if legal.

    MO has a law that they started in 1979 stating that anything found on government property MUST be turned in to them! IDK if people really do it, but just saying... You should look at the regulations for your state and maybe even county. Some places have a 'finders keepers' law, but others will take it from you.
    I'm excited by the mystery of the history!

    I would get it all I live by the first law finders keepers. Can you take some pictures of the hat and musket please?

    A story with no pics is just a story. You didn't take any pics in the cave? Hard to believe. April Fools again?? Sorry, call me a skeptic. Gary

    Please help me to understand, according to my date and time on this site (yesterday 09:50pm) you post that you and your brother found a cave 6 years ago containing Civil War items but you haven't returned because of the difficulty in getting there. Then (yesterday 11:08) almost an hour later you post again saying that you returned to the cave and recovered a hat and a musket. So do you live very close to the cave and it really isn't that difficult to get there? Or am I missing something?

    The confederate army was pretty short on resources in NE OK, but cool if they did stash this, couldn't get back to it and you found it. Couple of pics would go a long way in helping ID what you found, and you don't have to give the location away. Check first with the Oklahoma Historical Society about legalities. Might want to bring the landowner in on the deal, too.
    Just like Texas in 1880.

    Keep it quiet. Starting now. If you leave it, it will eventually turn to dust. If you tell the state, they may get you for trespassing.
