Check out my Article(Mississippi Memories-30 Years of Deep South Digging) in the July/August 2015 Issue of American Digger Magazine.

I am proud to let everyone know that I was one of the four volunteers that helped Police find the gun that was used to kill Jackson Police Officer Glen Agee. Check out the Story by clicking on the Link below.


Above is a pic of Joe Barnett and myself hunting the water where Police Officer Agee and the criminal fought. At first, we were reluctant to check out the creek because many snakes had been spotted in the area and the Police said they had covered it pretty well but I insisted on us getting in the water due to our equipment plus I dont like leaving any area unchecked. With relentless determination Joe found the gun in deep water.

Civil War Connection is proud to have made a contribution of expertise in the newly published Warman's Civil War Collectibles by John F. Graf.   The book's information was obtained from  some of the most knowledgable experts and dealers representing various regions of the country.  It is a superb Price Guide for Civil War memorabilia containing 571 pages with numerous pics & detailed descriptions making it an invaluable and easy to understand tool for anyone interested in Civil War memorabilia from expert to beginner.
