The Civil War Uncovered - Episode 5

On a moment's notice The Civil War Uncovered team were offered the chance to explore hallowed ground, the northeastern corner of the New Market Battlefield. In 1864 this was a pivotal action in the Shenandoah Valley. Today a small portion of the battle ground is in private hands, and it has been heavily hunted over the years. We spent two half afternoons exploring the site, and Relic Bob with his trusty Minelab GPX 4800 did not let us down.

The Civil War Uncovered Episode 3

Union forces were closing in on remnants of the Confederate Army, and 10,000 Union Calvary soldiers were advancing down the James River, destroying everything in sight and closing off the major transportation route that the James River had offered to the Confederate Army for four years. 

The Civil War Uncovered team dug through the historical archives and asked around within the local community. A clue was uncovered, and the team had a chance to take the Minelab metal detectors out on private property.

The Civil War Uncovered Episode 1

In August 2011, the producers of Minelab’s exclusive video series “The Civil War Uncovered” received an invitation to metal detect on private property in Culpeper County (Virginia) where portions of the 1st US Calvary were camped during the Civil War. This was an amazing opportunity to find 150 year old Civil War relics. The property owner agreed to let us hunt for just one hour. Bob Painter (Relic Bob) and I met on the property about an hour before sunset. Bob has almost 4 decades of relic hunting experience and uses a Minelab GPX 4800. I was no match for Bob’s decades of experience, so I armed myself with a GPX 5000 to reduce the handicap.
