Or one heck of a way to finally get that evasive 12 point buck they were stalking ...
Lets also put it in context with what was found around it, civil war bullets, bayonets and an exploded artillery shell. With those items found and within the context I would say the evidence points more than strong to how it was used.

It's dangerous to be right when those with a thimbleful of perceived authority are wrong.
Excellent answer Dan, I see you really do your research.

This is truly unreal guys! Was this site perhaps a battle or skirmish...perhaps this is reason for them being there?? How far apart were the rifles? Good guys, can't wait to see what else you may find next there.

Dan, the site saw activity from camps and troop movements. The general area also saw some battles.

Those are great finds. Congrats on making the banner. Will you be posting them on this thread, or will you be making another thread when the preservation process is complete? I don't want to miss it.
