Default Been out finding a few Civil War items.

Was down on a neighbor's farm this morning looking around. Quite a bit of Civil War activity just below it did managed to find a few things. This field is almost a half a mile long nice creek running beside it good place to fish. Didn't find too much one three ringer that hit some really hard and a piece of lead. There has been a lot bullets found a round that area by different people. Found what I think is a coin can't quite make out what it is though. Snap some pictures of the waterfalls a long the field the creek has some native trout in it. Last week at a different site I found six bullets and a button and amongst all of the cut nails. On both of these hunts I was using the equinox 600.

No about the same as the other side. I did get an identification think it's a large cent.

It sure is a peaceful spot to hunt. You wouldn't mind coming up and given me a hand hunting would you. Lot of ground for me to search by myself

What a beauty of a waterfall! Makes a guy want to build a cool stone house just above it, spin some power with a wheel...Nice post!

Dam Mud , that's exaclty what I thought when I saw that fall. Been thinking of sellin my place and finding some dirt back in the woods or hills and become a hermit , more so than I am now. Not sure I got the energy to complete that kind of project by myself before I return to dust. Might make a few back woods buzzards happy tho.
Nice finds there Bergie. Nice lookin property and pics as well.
