Subject: Archeologists Find Musket Balls Fired By Patriots During First Battle Of American Revolution

Very cool find. I wonder if it was a dig, or the park service was just using metal detectors.

Dn Jackson, I know they have used metal detectors on CW parks when I've been doing Living History on them. That would be my bet too.

It's no wonder they found something, it's a beautifully preserved site.

The Patriots may have dropped them when they ran away…!

Or Maybe Herky, they're not musket balls at all. Maybe just the petrified gonads of a British soldier who lost his there. 😉

just the petrified gonads of a British soldier

…unlikely, they would have got stuck in his gaiters!
