The next meeting of the Jackson Archaeological Society is coming up quickly, and the focus of the evening will be on Civil War archaeology in Tennessee. The full details are available in the following official meeting announcement:
Did I ever tell you about the time I spent with an old friend who was driving around in Nashville most of the day with an undisarmed and unexploded Civil War mortar round in the back floorboard of a light blue Ford sedan? That thing must have weighed 100 pounds or more and had a diameter just a little short of a regulation NBA basketball. Nah!!! That was 43 years ago.
