Perfect timing Richard...I have been pulling up your blog in my classroom and we have been looking at your finds. My students have come in asking, "what else did he find?" "Did he post anything else yet?" And we pull it up to see if you have posted anything else. They LOVED the NY State Militia button.

Awesome...

Lindsay - that is so neat! I'm honored and delighted that you've found something educational you could use for your class! What time do you check? I could try to post my bullet finds for you tomorrow, or maybe by Monday? Also, feel free to have your students submit questions about relic hunting and metal detecting. If I don't know the answer, I'll find out for them.

PS - I went out today for a while to the Dabney place - nothing significant to Dabney, but I did find what I believe to be part of an arrowhead. Would they like to see a photo of that?

Lindsay Horne said...

Oh absolutely...we did a whole Native American unit earlier this year so the arrowhead would be great to show them. Lots of them bring in arrowheads their family members have found and they think they are so neat.

Tomorrow is the last day before spring break for us so don't kill yourself posting - we actually start studying the war itself on Monday the 25th, so I will be showing them what you post between now and then. We have been studying the causes of the war all week and they are anxious to start "fighting" it!

I am just so glad to have found this blog, it really has been a neat find!

Oh, and I will definitely take you up on the offer to have some students ask questions about relic hunting...I am embarrassingly uneducated on the topic, so that would be helpful!

Ok - I'm sure their mind is on their vacation anyway - mine would be!

Sure - anything at all.
