Metal Detecting Post #9

Hunting for relics early this morning near the Piedmont battlefield in Augusta County, Virginia. 

I've noted before, but this ground is very special to me as one of my great-great grandfathers, John Meredith Crutchfield, was wounded at the Battle of Piedmont and then taken prisoner and sent to Camp Morton in Indiana.

The weather was perfect today - an absolutely beautiful day! A friend and I hunted on 43+ acres for almost 7 hours. We were able to make some great finds as well. I'll post some photos and descriptions soon.
