I had a lead on a little known Civil War skirmish. I was in deep woods with no sign of a house ever having been anywhere nearby. That was all I found except for a few fired rifle cartridges and shotgun shells. The rifle was empty, The dent in the feed tube came several years after I found it. I searched for the butt plate but never found it. I suppose a hunter could have kicked it up. My question has always been why empty, way out there in the middle of nowhere? I didn't find any fired cartridges. Nothing to explain it being there. I didn't find the skirmish site either. I always intended to go back but never got around to it.
