Survey of the Civil War battlefield began this week at Monteith Swamp in Chatham and Effingham Counties, Georgia. After a slow two days, on the third day we were rewarded with about two dozen iron grapeshot and about a dozen fired brass percussion caps that clued us into the battlefield landscape. Since then we have been plugging along unearthing and mapping an assortment of battle and post-battle objects in Harrison’s Field. Dog tired tonight after a week working in beautiful weather. A flock of turkeys kept a watchful eye on the crew. More later.
