Relic Hunting Post #159: How Relic Hunters Save & Preserve History & Educate the Public

Relic hunters sometimes get a bad rap. Unfairly so for the most part. Of course, you have your bad apples just like any vocation or avocation, but the vast majority of us relic hunt and collect because of our passionate interest in history. Steve Kaighen is one such man. His extensive knowledge of the United States Dragoons (1833-1861) has been acquired through relic recovery and self-education. His knowledge of the subject is quite impressive. And he does it all because of his passion and interest - not because he gets paid to do it. I recommend you view the video below in which Steve shares some of his collection and knowledge with the Nebraska Artifact Show.
