Civil War Relics in East Texas
January 05, 2011 01:16PM
Has anyone found or know anyone who has found civil war relics in the East Texas area? I have recently found several bullets and other items I have identified as being from the Civil War era and was wondering if anyone else had found anything like this in this area. I'm brand new to the metal detector world, but I am already hooked! Thank you in advance for any help or information.

The only 2 battles I know of are the Battle of Palmito Ranch (last battle of the Civil War) and the Battle of Sabine Pass.

I heard that there was a small shop in Jefferson, Texas where the owner was a real Civil Way historian and had a lot of relics. If this is true, who is it?

I have a US Army buckle found on my place that dates back to the Civil war and is of the earlier type worn......................the travel route at that time came through my place to get to Cheaney croosing, which was the crossing most used at that time in Texas........
