A friend found a complete set of the "OR" at a library sale that the pages were in excellent condition, but the bindings were ratty. He had the entire set rebound which made an impressive sight.Great find! I’ve used “The Official Records” volumes over the years to locate skirmishes in Kentucky. I never found anything like that... only a few bullets.
I love Civil war history.............Great display!I've found a few bullets, some fired, some dropped. most of the bullets were found around Marietta / Smyrna Ga. and Mud creek, found some parts of Artillery shell's [3" 6 lb I think] at Pickets mill, found a bayonet from from a Springfield a little north of Marietta at the lake block house. [battle there] .
I use to metal detect a lot, have not done much in the last few years, they have covered up a lot of the best places to hunt with Wall-Mark, Targets, Mac Donald's etc. which use to be privet property.
I would put up a pic. of the Artillery shell and some parts and the bayonet, but I traded most of them for a 1858 Remington, then traded it also.
Every once and a while during some construction of a mall going up they will still dig up some things and the word will get out, then there's a rush by those who hear it 1st to get there and hunt. that's part of the fun.
