    John H Morgan Confederate Camp, Union Camp Overlaying Colonial Site

    Over a three hunt period, VOL1266X and I hunted a Union camp, a Confederate camp, and then another Union camp that is overlaying a colonial site. The first picture is my finds from the first Union camp. There I found three .58 caliber bullets, one Merrill carbine bullet, and one underwear button. This camp was on a very steep hill and we were only there for a couple of hours. The second hunt was at John H Morgan's Confederate camp. The area that we hunted was either a rest stop on an old road leading to the camp or a picket post. I found a small buckle and I am not sure what it was used for. I believe it may have been off a pack; but, if anyone else has an idea, please let me know. We have found spoons, knives, scissors, and dropped bullets in the area. VOL found a cuff link at that site. The second picture contains the items I found from that site. The final picture is from our March 1st hunt. We started at a Union camp that we had hunted numerous times before. We climbed an adjacent hill next to the camp, where we had found dropped .69 caliber bullets before. I found three flat buttons and the end of a pewter spoon. None of the buttons have back marks on them. I also found a small rectangular piece of brass. I don't know what it is and I was hoping someone familiar with Colonial sites would be able to tell me what it is. I also found a couple of round pistol balls. Thanks for looking.

    Just because it did not work does not mean it was not a good plan!

    Very awsome finds Dman. Looks like we can say you got the lead out (of the ground)
    That buckle looks nice.

    I LOVE sites that overlap! Last year we found an early one that was French, British, and American spread over 2 fields. It was great day digging!
