Going to start listing some things now that my move is over and my PC is back set up. Still haven't found my charging cords to my cameras so using crummy cell phone photos, but will try to get a few things up and running.

Location Recovered:

Description:Friction primer recovered by Larry McCoy near Fort Huger at the North end of Mobile Bay. This style is distinctly CS as can be seen in the way the right angle was formed by 45 degree cuts to the copper tube. This seems simpler than the common way and another piece of Confederate ingenuity.
