Metal Detecting Post #102 - Louisiana Relic Hunt

Below is a great video produced by Garrett Metal Detectors and narrated by historian and relic hunter, Steve Moore. As their link notes . .
The Garrett team travels to bayou country in search of Civil War history on the well-hunted 1864 Battle of Pleasant Hill. Steve hopes to find artifacts where several of his ancestors fought with Texas-based Confederate companies. Stay tuned in to the end for a brief tour of an impressive private museum of Civil War artifacts from the Pleasant Hill battle.
What makes this video all the more interesting is the personal ancestral connection Steve has with the battle. I know what that is like as I've recovered a number of WBTS relics from battlefields where my own ancestors fought and were wounded. The experience is beyond my ability to describe. This is a 25 minute video, but worth the time to view and admission is free! Grab yourself a cup of coffee, hit the play button, sit back, relax, and enjoy the film.
