    Do they let people dig around in battle fields? I realize you might have meant "around" in the general area. Very pretty and sad.

    No the NPS doesn't allow it-- can result in loss of detectors and a heavy fine for digging on park land. With permission original battlefield land that is not part of the National Park can be dug.

    I wouldn't ID this particular style to the Civil War era. IN MY OPINION, the style looks much later than Civil War.

    I just have to say if these were found at a battlefield they should be donated to a local museum closest to your discovery. I visited Petersburg, VA last year and actually felt physically weak and sluggish the whole time there. So many souls lost and families devastated.
