    Great memorial weekend finds.... Indian wars military

    Went out this weekend and found all these in one day...... Then I had this realization of Memorial Day on Monday.... These soldiers were stationed far from home in the wild frontier of Montana Territory. Finding these items is like pulling a time capsule from the ground. Then itClick image for larger version.

    Nice digs! I admit I don't know a lot about ammunition and the like, but you've peaked my interest in looking at all my shell casings and bullets again.

    We've been finding .54 cal Miss. Rifle three ring minies as well.... I know a lot of ex- confederate soldiers came to Montana after the CW and brought thier front loaders with them. I read that these pinfire shotguns were favored by the south during the CW..??..
    I know that the Fort Shaw post trader, Phil Manix, for one, was confederate who came out this way.....
    My imagination runs wild trying to make sense or a context

    That is quite an impressive haul for one day! I'm seeing both rim and center fire cartridges. As veteran, I appreciate your reflections on Memorial Day. I wish you continued happy hunting!

    Here is what your pinfire could've looked like back before it was fired and left in the ground.
