I returned to site where I found the breast plate and all those bullets. Last time I found 39 billets and this time I pulled 23, along with a lot of camp lead, a few rivets, and some modern clad. Today I finally found a button - not a Yankee but a Confederate block “I”... and ANOTHER breast plate! The button was found in the middle of an old road bed (in the middle of all the other stuff) and the breast plate about 75 feet from where the first one was found. Still no Yankee buttons! I added pics before and after cleaning. Also added the other plate - both are in excellent shape front and back! Enjoy!

Well done! Good on the Infantry button. Seems I can't find one so I just bought one, lol.
That is ok, rebel. I have found tons of buttons but never one of them. We are in same club, brother.

Is little Archie going to Ole Miss?

Little Archie is relying on the Manning name only...he has stunk it up quite a bit. Oh, and just for you:

Wow, what an amazing day/s for sure. With all that you've already found, you might need some help from someone like me (cough cough) to help you finish off that spot. :laughing7: Congrats for real!
