I'll try and get a picture. It is really hard to make out but I think I can get it done and post it. BTW, I would NEVER put it in my pocket but i'm sure you were just being "humorus". In any case, if you really would like to see it, I can arrange that. I got in touch with the people who are the decendents of the regiment. They were very pleased to know I had found it.
Let me know if you are serious or just sarcastic.

It's not, It's a campsite that was used by both sides. A four acre homesite that is still in use. It sit's on a hill and never was any kind of graveyard. The soldiers dropped stuff everywhere. There are minnies everywhere. The yankees were issued 20 every day and if you have ever held one you'll know, they are heavy. They threw them away everywhere. Confederate bullets are more rare. The buckles I have found are all equipment buckles from cavalry and other equipment. It's amazing how you try to make something into something it's not. That's ok though, I know what I do and why I do it and I know that it does indeed honor the men who served, even the invader, to find the things that they left behind, preserve, and display them. I can't speak for others but I have never sold anything I have found and never will. Neither will I ever give them away. I will at some point loan them to a museum. That way they can never sell them when they need funds.
I hope you will take the time to found your opinion on something other than emotion.

I can see where Lt. Chapman is coming from. I see no harm nor foul. There's a vast difference between probing for relics on a battlefield and combing a private homesite that was dotted with latrines and tents and discards -- and will eventually be a parking lot or strip mall. If it was ever a hospital or significant HQ, I'd change my opinion. But it wasn't. It was just a stopover on movements from here to there and back again. The relics are common souvenirs and have no more relevance than the quarter you pick up in a parking lot.
Well, metal detecting is far more difficult that I think. You will find much more scraps than treasures. Besides owning a good metal detector, the most important thing is that you should be very patient.
