Results of eight hours on a 1850-1880's farm site , using metal detectors to locate possible dump sites or trash pit. I knew Civil War sites were close, but was not expecting the amount of lead , buttons, a period token and uniform buttons! The bottles were mostly 1880-90's, near the site of of a old farm house. At some time, someone was shot at in that long home or did a little target practice in the "backyard".

Hi relic, one is an eagle type , that looks to be an Illinois state emblem. The 20th and 30th Illinois units patrolled this area near Jackson and Medin Tn. Except for a couple others , they are period commercial with US and London makers. When the dirts off , I'll post better pictures. Always find tools on these farm sites.
