John, Rose and the Committee,
I really appreciated the opportunity to explore thus historic property. Had a great time with friends and found some relics along with way. Being able to hunts both fields and woods was nice. I mostly hunted for fuses and shells on day 1. Happened across a couple of parrot fuses and an anvil cap. Dug 2 groundbursts, one with a 2 piece West Point pattern percussion fuse (anvil cap and anvil/igniter). No complete shells, though, but was not surprised to see a number of shells come out of this place given the amount of frags, case shot and sabots that were being found. Day 2 and 3 involved hunting in the woods and back fields, where colonial spot yielded up several flat buttons, a brass jaw harp and an early 19th century Virginia “Rockaway” style axe head. Felt good to get into the woods!
