    And your personal view depends on whether you're a Loyalist or Colonialist. The Loyalist basically said we should submit to the British since they're our authority - even if you don't agree with them. The Colonialist said to hell with long distance authority - we can govern ourselves. And fought for the right to do so.

    So - should we obey our gov't today? The Bible says we should obey our authorities, yet God clearly wiped out existing countries ruled by kings and Jesus regularly broke the laws of the existing authorties. I'm not trying to pick a fight - religious or otherwise - just making the point. Again - depends on whether you're a loyalist or colonialist. Most people are probably not at either extreme. I don't believe in anarchy - we need structure and order that gov't provides. But I certainly can't stand a bunch of bureaucrats who waste millions (billions?) of taxdollars and tell me I have to wear a seatbelt or whether or not I can detect on "their" land.

    Sorry, I get carried away sometimes... :P

    any of the civil war sites would be great. the lawn of the white house and the islands and waters of boston harbour
    also around the alamo and being able to dig the signal they got in the street in front of it a few years ago would be great

    also the battlesites for lexington and concord

    and all of mel fishers lease areas

    so many places so little time
    question if we can detect any where we want will we be supplied with any detectors we want


    as for nighthawks do not confront just call the police

    For one, most museum curators are some of the worst packrats! They don't know what to do with all the stuff in inventory-that's why they occasionally sell the stuff off to private collectors so they can have room for more stuff!
    Nighthawks I'm sure do what they do for money or at the very least to "beat the system".

    Fort Monroe, Richmond/Petersburg battlefields, Yorktown

    I'm still confused on the battlefields comments as to being off limits. Should all battlefields be off limits - even those now private property? As goldhunter said, most battlefields even the major ones cover land that is under private ownership that folks, if they get a fortunate yes from landowner can hunt. Most of the major battlefields were detected (with NPS knowledge) sometime into the mid-60s. Not saying everything is gone but there's probably not as much there as everyone would expect - additionally both soldiers and civilians would gather battlefield finds immediately after the conflict.

    Have gone night hunting (with permission) 1) when time didn't permit during the day and 2) when detecting during the day would pose too great a risk of opening the property up to detectorists w/o permission. Nothing like a full moon, starlit sky, 25 degrees and CW relics popping out of the ground.

    First off if you guys want to find civil war stuff..look at the training camps leftover from civil war.
    Training camps arent protected and they are full of stuff. A simple Google search will point you in the right direction.

    id hunt stone henge,, but that place is well off limits,, its the same here in england guys,, stupid rules 1 for us and 1 for them,, archies get away with tearing the ground up good style,, they move diggers in here, and dig deep as hell, all we do is dig a little hole remove the coin ect and place the turf back, never know we've been, but hey when the archies are there you sure know they've been,. you know the archies get paid very little here in England, and they get jealouse of mders getting the coin,, that too plays a part in there hatred towards us,, but i can only state that in my country,. we have night hawkers, here, they sneak on fields in the night were they've heard there is finds and collect some, so the archies dont get em all, i personnaly say good luck to em in a way, there not doing any harm, its not stealing the stuff was allready lost,, just waiting to be found by someone,., they want ban mding,, as they know everybody would then night hawk, as the passion is too great for us,, so that would cause them a extra large problem,.

    In the Mediteranean Sea off the coast of Tripoli, Libya. It's crystal clear and you can read a newspaper at 30' on a calm day and no tides to deal with as it lies east to west or vice versa. I was there in the late sixties and there was lots of old Roman artifacts and WWII military armament. They were always exploding a foud WWII bomb just off the swimmig beach. Also there is a coral reef out about a hundred yards and the water is waist deep. You can stand up on the reef and dive the sites either side of it, about 10 ft. on the land side and 30' and deeper on the seaside. Never thought of it until now but millions of GIs have used the beach over the past 100+ years. "From the halls of Montazuma to the shores of Tripoli"..........Pirates fought off by the US Marines back a hundred or more years ago.

    I have to agree, Monty. I've often thought of that area myself.

    A while back I had a chance to get a large cannon ball I believe a diver found there. I'm still kicking myself for not taking it.
