This might be a find of a lifetime for me because of where I found it, but in order not to appear biased towards what it is, I just want to make sure of what it is before I tell y'all where I found it and my thoughts on it.
I am 90% sure this is a Civil War era Springfield musket barrel and butt plate. The barrel is 40 in. Long and is .58 Cal. Tomorrow we are going back to the site where we found it to find the rest of it. We had to cut the search shirt because the gun was in a hornets nest. We're killing the hornets tomorrow. 😁
