    On the morning of the 4th of May the regiment moved from camp, and at noon of the 5th emerged upon the Wilderness battle-ground. Upon the Plank Road, near the point where General Meade afterwards established his headquarters, the Second Division separated from the rest of the corps, and while Sedgwick, with two divisions, moved off to the right, it advanced on the Plank, and after crossing to the Gordonsville Road, came suddenly upon a concealed foe, who poured into it a most withering fire. The line was immediately formed and a charge ordered, which was promptly made, and the woods in front were cleared. A position two hundred yards in advance of this was taken up and the enemy's coming awaited. At four in the afternoon, Hill's Corps, which had been hurried forward from Gordonsville, attacked in overwhelming numbers and with unwonted impetuosity. For two hours the battle raged with great violence, the slaughter being terrible, at the end of which the regiment was relieved and rested on its arms during the night, having lost, during the brief period of the fighting, sixteen killed and one hundred and twelve wounded.
    Wounded on May 5, 1864 along the Plank Road near Spottsylvania Courthouse in central Virginia. Has surgery 5 (June 17) weeks later in Philadelphia. Returns to duty in March 1865.

    I had a good signal and was thinking half dollar

    Duh the hole and out pops a big disc. I was thinking large cent as soon as



    Being the curious person I am I started cleaning it in the field. Was confused when I see 1861 and a shield. I didn't know what it was so immediately started looking online



    I first thought it was a civil war token but noticed some writing on the back. I then found it was a civil war dog tag. How the heck did that end up in this park!!!!

    I am still in the cleaning stage but it's coming along nicely. It's in really good shape and just some peroxide made a lot of the original brass color show up

    I still have ore cleaning to do but it just amazes me the history behind this.

    Here is a pic of how it's coming along


    The back still need some cleaning but the writing is all legible

    The back says
    Caleb r foster
    COB
    13 reg
    Vol




    I suck at research so a big thanks to kiros32

    He found that Caleb r foster was in the 102 regiment Pennsylvania infantry company b
    He was wounded at wilderness va
    He mustered out with his company on June 28 1865
    He died at 78 from pneumonia and he is buried in Chartiers Cemetery which is about 10 miles from here

    I have started looking at values and looks like at auction it could go from $1750 to $2200. Wow

    I am still shaking and this is definitely my best find ever its gonna be hard to top this one!!!
    Many congratulations on the super-cool find!

    All the best,
