Extraordinary news from South Carolina this week. A metal detectorist found this badge that Civil War soldier Private Amasa Peters lost on this way to the Battle of Honey Hill.

Wow!  What a great find!

It's also nice to come across an artifact of someone you have studied on Wikitree.

Wow.  That is priceless.  Has it gone to a descendant or a museum?
