Road to Bottom’s Bridge

I’ve had my eye on this property for a while now and recently gained permission to hunt it.  It’s not a big field but does have an old home site and also borders an old road which at one time ran from the court house to Bottom’s Bridge.

I’ve been there for two Saturdays now and have found a handful of colonial flat buttons, a ball button, musket balls and a other colonial relics.  These finds were mostly found around the perimeter of the field away from the home site.  Before I left yesterday, I ventured over to the old home site and within minutes found a union three ringer which isn’t a confirmation that this site was a union camp but gives hope that my research was correct.  I am mainly concentrating on the field this fall/winter and will focus on the home site next spring.
