A Drought But Not Skunked

We went back to a place today where a large Union camp was located, however it has been pounded by metal detectorists over the years.  After a front moved through last night, it made digging bearable even though it still reached the upper 80s today.

But… The ground is like concrete still.  According to meteorologists, we are experiencing a small drought.  There’s nothing like trying to metal detecting for Civil War relics but spend almost 5 minutes digging a target because of the hard-baked ground.

We did, however, recover a few objects today!  Started out with a Colt bullet.  Eventually, we uncovered a Cuff Sized General Service Eagle Button (that had almost deteriorated), a flat button, and a 1943 Mercury Dime.  All in all, we had a great time!
