    What a poor showing. You could only manage 4? I really am amazed. That is some site you have there . Was it an encampment or was there a skirmish of some sort? Either way, it looks like you have one honey of a spot and judging by the bullets and the plates, a place to dig for a good summer and probably a few years to come.

    This was a resting spot for a bunch of NY boys right before they walked in to a well hidden line of VA troops and got thier butts waxed!!I am still working the area of the approach... I need to find where the line broke and they hauled butt out of the area... I'm thinking that might produce a lot more relics... ;-) The was an area right above a spring... nothing more then a resting spot...

    That's the best spot I've ever heard of. Very few people ever get to dig relics like that in one spot. Congrats
    I HAD RATHER DIG ONE RELIC THAN TEN COINS

    Have you walked the spring yet? You may find a few good items in and around the old bed. Those poor NY boys...they may have been my neighbors!
