    Yesterdays Civil War finds

    It was a brisk 38 degrees, but the sun was out. A little, then it started to sprinkle. These items are from the Civil War camp that has been pounded for 50 years. It was only of my best days there yet. Click image for larger version.

    First picture is a complete musket worm, it should clean up nice, fourth picture is left to right, three percussion caps, a hard to get find from here because of the mineralized soil, 9 pieces of camp lead, porcelain button and an eagle button, the broken glass bottle has a piece of lead melted to it! Sixth picture is a solid thick iron plate, apparently broken. Anybody have a clue on this? Last picture is the typical iron ration can and nail trash from the site. There are thousands of these pieces on the site, many are found under the coil the same sweep as a good item. It is a tough place to dig.

    Thank you all. I LOVE minie balls, and we only find drops in the camp. I found one pulled one, nothing fired. The percussion caps are a special treat. I think I may have dug 10-12 in my entire life. They are hard to get. Where I was digging was next to a previously dug out hut. The guys back then with the BFO machines and early VLF machines just couldn't punch through the red dirt. All this stuff and the items from last week's posts were discards that were OUTSIDE the hut. Just laying there for 150 years, waiting.

    Thank you. Not a ton of stuff, but I'll take it. The worm for the musket is coming along ok. I soaked it for 36 or so by now in Iron Out. Iron is coming off. Brushed it a little and put it in a new batch of Iron Out. Will check it again late tonight or Sunday. Going back to the site to dig a hut out tomorrow with another Tnetter. Today it's a colonial store/Rev War area. Assuming I don't get rained out.
