    A Couple of Civil War First

    I love to put in a long hard couple of days of Civil War digging and come home with a few relics, but it's always nice to find things that you've never found before. I had always wanted to find a lockplate with the hammer attached and I found this one next to an old tobacco barn back in the woods. The fuse adapter was found about 10 yards from a road, I also found my only 3 bullets of the weekend there.
    Yesterday was a dawn to dusk hunt with just a couple of shell fragments for my part, but
    my hunting partner had the find of the weekend with a beautiful CS buckle tongue. I was so happy for him and it was awesome to witness such a great find.

    Most of the CW bullets that I find come out white, however this area produces some red/brown ones as well....I guess its the soil.

    Love both the lock plate (I've never found one) and the fuse adapter. Well done!
