  4. Civil War Bullets?

    A few bullets (I think) around NW GA old farm land. They look similar to Civil War era rounds but most of the pictures I?ve seen have more pronounced ridges around them...

  5. First flat button & other relics!

    Headed back to the cellar hole today, the house was used during the civil war as a headquarters/ fort. I’ve pulled bullets, eagle buttons, and other items from here. The signals are becoming few and far between. Very hard to find anything worth digging so I’ve started digging every tone no...

  9. CIVIL WAR LEAD TUBE?

    Here is some miscellaneous lead I’ve dug on the battlefield. A lot of them look like lead artillery sabbot fragments. But my strangest find is this lead tube. I joked with my girlfriend that a soldier carried it on a rope. But in all honesty I’m not sure what it is. I’d love to have this mystery...

    I haven't had much luck finding new places to hunt lately and hadn't even bothered putting much effort into hunting lately since most of my places have dried up. And to be quite honest I was a little burnt out because of it, but today my wife told me I needed to go because she could tell I was...
