Back to the Hot Spot Yankee Camp

Last weekend, I returned with my digging partner to the early war Yankee camp where I had found the early militia belt plate a few weeks prior. There was a good 2-3 inches of snow on the ground, but we figured the soil would not be frozen in the woods. Luckily, we were right. Despite the slushy and muddy mess, we managed to have a great hunt. Thank goodness for mud boots and warm gloves.

I found several bullets (mostly .54 minies) and three buttons – a GS cuff, GS coat, and an artillery coat. I also dug a bit boss, but it was a plain militia variety and not a US. My “find of the day” was a beautiful carbine sling buckle. My friend found a cavalry spur, an artillery coat button, and several bullets including an Enfield. We both had to give our CTX’s a bath following this hunt.

Here's what ironman200081 let me dig. I thought the ironman moniker meant he digs iron..........Nope......he is a WWE wrestler when it comes to diggin relics. He puts you in a sleeper hold and by the time you come to he pretty much has dug most of the finds.

The only thing missing is the "A" button. It was soaking. Part of a pewter spoon handle, unknown brass, spur, suspender clip,melted 3 ringer, bullets, my second ever Enfield.

That's the only time you don't mind ljtter, when the Yanks are dropping and littering the ground with relics. Very nice finds and saves on the spur and the other finds. Nice Saved History.

It's best to hit the ground when I take my mid-hunt nap and jerky feast break. That knocks me out of action for a solid 30 minutes. Or when I am elbows-deep in a hole digging up a beer can for several minutes!!
