Civil War Era? - what do i have here?

Hello guys,

Pulled some rail spikes (see photo) out of a raised platform that runs through my backyard and down toward Aquia Creek. There is a point along the water that could have been a stop point for the old trains. Here are some of the items I pulled yesterday.

Any comments would be great. Not sure if I am looking at all civil war era stuff or something more modern. Lots of duck blinds in the area - so I am guessing hunters have also been building on the site for decades.

Thanks!

Jim

Looks like common railroad tie spike and a clamp from a fence post...

It may be worth cleaning the top of the railroad spikes as there are many interesting markings to appreciate. Peace
