This is a site I stumbled on and found a few cool relics.. It was as though one person came to this spot to get the buzz on? Lol

Winchester brass 12ga cartridge, toe tap, Healy & Bigelows KICKAPOO INDIAN OIL, SLOWCUMS Oxygenized Cod Liver Oil.. was a bunch of the small whiskey bottles all broke..

Nice recoveries, TC
Ouch on the flasks
Is the site dug out now, or is it a ongoing dump dig?
This area is dug out, I do plan to go back and searching farther down the river, I found this area heading down to the river with my detector on, heard a iron patch and started investigating...

Love the Kickapoo!! I found a couple of those on Martha's Vineyard, gave one to one of my Wampanoag friends. Those who remember Lil' Abner comics may remember there was "Kickapoo Joy Juice", an alcoholic beverage in the cartoons. I'm sure Al Capp the writer must have gotten the idea from the Kickapoo Indian Oil ads.

That's awesome Gunsil, from what I've read online Healy & Bigelow's where the kings of snake/Indian oil.

Great bottles. Looks like your faithful pet is enjoying the site too. So Kickapoo was kind of a sarcastic name for a digestive snake oil? A pepto bismol wannabe?
I see that the Kickapoo is/was a tribe in the US.
