    Awesome! It could have been owned by a settler, Kearny actually went right through there but they did not have percussion revolvers back then. It was more a capture than a skirmish (but I think a few shots were fired) also someone I know found more gun parts and eagle buttons there.

    I actually did not know that a Civil War capture and trail was there until I got home and researched “Civil War in San Diego” there is actually a lot of good info about it.

    Thanks! It could be linked with the Mexican American war but I believe that the percussion revolvers were made later than the Mexican American War.
