    Was out in the Florida backwoods today diggin!

    I hiked up to an area where an old supply fort once stood 150+ years ago in boondocks Florida. Not really sure what half of it is, but hey it's something! Did find a cool Winchester 38 special casing.

    I'm hoping I'm in the correct area where the fort was. Does anyone have any clue how old some of the finds may be? A few of the pieces look older, but not sure on the era. The cast iron looks to be a piece of a circle. The smaller piece is really thin and has tiny square patterns with a nail hole punched through it looks like. Thanks guys!
