White’s,

I’ve been doing some research, and discovered the possible location of a Union Cavalry Civil War encampment in central Virginia. After gaining permission from the land owner, my initial search of the fields turned up 16 bullets and other relics confirming the area was used by those troops.

My friend and I went in together using a White’s MXT and XLT and for the next couple of trips we dug over 300 Spencer bullets and other Civil War relics from that encampment area. Above is a picture of my recoveries from that small site. As you can see I’ve got quite a few whole Spencer bullets, eagle buttons, a Civil War sheet music holder in the shape of a lyre, and a company hat letter insignia “H”.

This was a fun site. I need to find some more like this one. Thanks White’s, for the great detectors.

Vernon
