no one takes the fight to america anymore. I don't have anything to go look at.
My dad metal detects, we have too much coins in this house, but i think the one he is most proud of is a golden Celtic. He's also told me once that someone he was with dug up a landmine so this guy hit it with his shovel before throwing it into an adjacent river.

I wanna do some relic hunting, but there really isn't much to find in Michigan. There weren't that many battles here. Luckily, I live in a village that was founded in the early 1800's so there's bound to be something in the woods, even though they may not be war relics.
[QUOTE=evilweazel;33586760]I live on what was once a huge American Civil War hotspot. We find musketballs and forks and shit all the time, and when they were digging up the woods behind us we went detecting and found a confederate saber. Always nice to have a confederate obsessed history nut for a neighbor when you live in Virginia.[/QUOTE] I live in South Carolina where the first shots of the Civil War were fired and the State that played a crucial role in the Revolutionary War.

I would really like to get into this stuff but I don't know of any locations to find old relics. I am on a military base though, old spend shells and crap lays everywhere but that doesn't interest me.

This looks really interesting. I wish I could find some stuff. But alas, I am in Las Vegas, so i dont think there would be anything worth finding in the desert outskirts besides some scrap metal.
