Metal Detecting Post #14

Homeschooler finds Civil War sword with metal detector near Berryville, Virginia:

"A week after receiving a metal detector for his seventh birthday, Lucas Hall's gift is already paying dividends for the first-grader."

Now that's teaching history. Story here.

I wonder if he slept with the sword that first night; I probably would have as a first grader. In my current middle-age, it resting on the night stand might suffice.

I sort of picture a "King Arthur moment" with lightening bolts and time travel as this was pulled from the ground. Guess I've read too many novels

No, you're probably not too far off.
