Had a good day Saturday...Civil War Muskets!!!
My buddy Beau and I got out Saturday to try another spot. The research was spot on and the relics could not be much better. There is always satisfaction when research pays off and you can find yourself retracing the footsteps of those 150 years ago. We have had some great luck over the years hunting together, but this one will be towards the top in my memory. The best two finds of the day were the two Enfield Muskets. Mine still has the majority of the stock still intact. We also managed a bayonet each along with bullets. I will post pictures up when the preservation process and electolysis is complete. Hope everyone had a good weekend. I am sure Beau will post up the video when complete along with the rest of his finds. This was us just before we parted ways for the day and headed home as happy as two guys could be.

Congratulations on a Fantastic Find.
A little bit chilling to think of why you would leave your Enfield behind in time of war.
Someones possible very bad luck made your day very Special.
Just an incredible piece of American History.
I vote Banner.
