Read the Civil War Story
of Meadville, PA
started back on the fifth day of April, 1981. I was metal detecting Athens
High School in Athens, Alabama not far from Huntsville. I remember
hunting under a row of large buttonwood trees and receiving a signal which
I thought was going to be a silver quarter. After digging down four
inches I retrieved an object in the shape of a shield. On the back
was a clasp which crumbled to pieces from being in the ground so long.
On the front I could make out the letters: C. Myers above a "B" with
crossed swords with IV.V.C and War of 1861. Read the rest of the story
