January 1st, 2014

When people see my civil war collection of belt plates & my cannon they assume I go to battle sites to detect. Actually all of the belt plates came out of city parks. People don’t realize that these parks were training areas during the rev war & civil war. The large open spaces were perfect areas to become town & city parks. The 1842 cannon in my yard was given to me by a farmer friend whose property I hunted for years. He knew I would give it a good home.
