    Thanks Jake,
    Its a 4.50 inch 12 Pounder, and today I dug another piece at the same site that ties to the Artillery....Letter "A" Hat piece. The recovered relics, lanscape, and other factors are telling a different story than my research. To be continued......

    Re: My July 4th "Cherry Bomb"

    Is this place protected (state/fed park)? Great research, I cant for the life of me think that you are at a battle site that isn't restricted. Are there such places? Everything around here is a stinking state park. (I shouldn't say stinking, because not everyone takes care of these places and I guess someone has to protect them.)

    Nice cw stuff. That stuff is neat to own. Would like to do some civil war hunting here in the future. There's alot of places in P.a to look. Just need more travel time to find it. Keep hunting that site. Looks like just the beginning.

    The whole state of Virginia would have to be a state park then, because, ALL, of Va's soil is enriched with history. So much Civil War history, most land was either fought on or camped on. This site is soon to be developed for new homes.
