    Went to a real historic site but the best will have to wait

    My partner Possum scored a very historic site and we drove the 2 hours and it was rough. I from New Orleans I didnít even know Louisiana had peaks and valleys. Needless to say it was a rough hunt and once the Mississippi River goes down we can cross and be on the paradise spot weíre waiting for. Needless to say I proudly found what I think is a Sharps and a musket ball. Thank you for looking Click image for larger version.

    Good idea waiting for the water to fall.

    Might be a Burnside carbine or a possibly a beat up Merrill carbine. Tough to tell from the angle.
