Spent hundreds of hours over the last few years locating campsites from Goldsboro to Raleigh. Many maps & regimental histories .Have located 6 of them, hunted 3,but this is the only spot that I actually found things that verified my research. These were 1 day camps.1st found a bullet 3 yrs. ago but was unable to get back to this site until few weekends ago(twice). The area is now being developed so I was fortunate to make these finds before it will be lost to history. I made this plaque & nailed it to a tree. Finds include 1st gold coin ever($1 Charlotte),a bazaar 1/2 a bullet(can anyone explain that ?)& a Williams cleaner w/zinc insert removed(unique to Sherman's army after research)& the longest Black snake I have ever come across! This was a wing that comprised 4 regiments & this spot was obviously where a group was stationed to guard the river crossing leading towards the main area of the campsite.
