Default Seminole Wars ??

Any Floridians know of any Seminole War sites that can be detected? There is always that story of the burried crate of Colt Revoler Carbines that were buried along the old Military Trail to keep them out of the hands of the Seminoles. I am in Palm Beach County.

I hunted one indian war fort site in Florida years ago and even then that place had been virtually worn out by detectorists. I did manage to find a musket ball though and my wife found a button , the place was heavily wooded for the most part. Its been so long I cant remember where it is though

Those sites are usually well guarded secrets but I suspect there are some yet to be found. Takes a lot of research and legwork.

My house was a Second Seminole War camp and itís had tons of fun stuff. I also found a fort which has even more. These sites are incredible if you can find them.
