That sounds like a great time. Great job finding and being able to dig the privies.Got out Sunday again with my son and dug a pair of privies. The first was a big 1860's/1870's privy that had been heavily dipped (always bad news). Found a couple of bottles under a center horizontal brace in the privy (an amber flask with a star embossed, an umbrella ink bottle, and a few slicks). All the way down in one corner I found a nice early W. Hekelnkaemper Atchison Kansas blob top soda bottle...the prize of the day. Second privy was from the same time period but shaped more like a trough and had a nice big peppersauce bottle, an embossed English blackglass bottle, and a few other odds and ends in it. Always nice to get into some earlier stuff...never know what you might find! It was rainy and cold so we called it a day a bit earlier than normal.
