    Update on the KMA plate

    Thanks to Smokeythecat I found out my box plate is more rare than I thought. I reached out to several people with connections to dealers and appraisers of civil war artifacts. Everyone that has got back to me says that they have never seen one, much less seen one for sale. They are trying to gather more information on it. The Kentucky Military Academy was pre Civil War and changed to the Kentucky Military Institute prior to the war.

    Of course the excitement made me go back again to the yard and search for anything else I could find. Nothing found but some melted lead, small brass fasteners, and a lot of trash because I dug every signal.

    Nice one Elvis. They camped all around Chickamaga down there. Many yards can produce Civil war and off of 2-a is the old 6th Calvary dump.I hunt that area when I can.

    Hello, could you provide documentation on KMI originally being KMA? I have see no info in the research I’ve done. I lived in Kentucky for many years just a stones throw from Lyndon where the Institute was. My hunch here is that we have a box plate from some other regiment or institute. As far as I know, KMI was always KMI since it’s founding in 1845.

    Buckle boy that was what a local dealer had told me. Nothing that I had found myself. What I found was exactly what you had said.
