Silvercop, though I haven't personally relic-hunted in the West Point GA area, I know with certainty that some very rare Confederate artillery projectiles were found at a cannon emplacement there, by relic-hunters, back during the 1970s.

The Official Records ("War of the Rebellion: Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies") are now available in keyword-searchable format on the Internet, at the Ohio State University website and Cornell University website, if I recall corectly. Go there and do a keyword search of the ORs for the location "West Point Georgia". That should give you some leads for civil war military sites near where you live.
