    Why that is such an abhorrent activity to you is an answer not worth searching for.
    That's true. There is a distinct pleasure in holding something old and historical at a scene where you know what went on there.
    I could tell by buttons which soldiers were there in the CW and if they were militia and their corp. Cross referencing with historical data I could tell the brigade, sometimes. It was a very interesting hobby.

    to a point, true. but Coppens died at the turnpike while his men were slaughtered in the sunken road.

    There are treasures buried and hidden of a substantial nature in the US.

    Some are known to be in a general area, like a specific county or mountain range.
    Some are hinted at , some are long standing legends, some are just stumbled on, some are found by research,
    psychological profiling and understanding the circumstances around the "treasure", perhaps all three.


    Lots of failure occurs , sure, but the first failure is always a defeatist attitude.

    In 1934 two boys found an ass load of gold coins buried under a tenement house in Baltimore City.

    It is believed to be KGC gold.
    Today it would be worth about 10 million.

    For example, I have been researching indian trails in Pa, some of these became wagon trails.
    Using maps before the colonies became states.

    Had one buddy who found a stone ax head when he was a teen down by a stream
    , I have two arrowheads.

    Stuff is out there.
