I got out this weekend, but could only take the extreme heat and humidity for about 2 hours. Mosquitoes the size of sparrows! Fire ants, horseflies, you name it, they were after me. But it was worth it for the fine 1820 General Service US Army button, with "UNITED STATES" backmark, and a bent shank. It's been a while since I dug a button this old, and it's from right in my own neighborhood, too. Very convenient.
