" RIVER OF DREAM'S"
by sam lejune
..the map was old and the story was twice as old of the confederates hangout here in south louisiana. i planned this hunt and stayed up nights online searching...searching...maps,maps ,maps, stories and archived knowledge of this conflict. Finally..i went to the location and snooped for hours..i finally roamed the dry river bottom of crow creek and my detector sounded...??i dug trash and debris and horseshoes for three hours before finding an unknown cache of bullets,coins and belt buckles.civil war vets knew of no other place to dig ..but under the earth to secure thier treasure until later. but this was a river bed and it obviously wasnt new and had little errosion over two hundred uears. anyway you slice the ground..it was payday!!Coins, bullets and a dagger from the south....i dont doubt the validity of the story///loot in crow creek river..but the detector and that location will hunt for months to find more.battle grounds are not hunted out forever!!!i know of several...GO HUNT THE GROUNDS!!!if its illeagal...go find another one to hunt!!and Please plug the goffer holes!!!i will report back in july!!!sam lejune- lafayette,louisiana.
