Go Up Go Down

Any of the 13 original colonies generally have had occupation from the late 1500s so they'd be my choice. Living in CT, I can assure you that a rich history during the colonial period, Revolutionary War and Civil War exists. Finds from all of those eras can be found anywhere you bring your coil to the soil. No Civil War battles were fought here but they assembled the newly recruited Union troops in campgrounds all over the state. I've also found Civil War uniforms (both sides) and thousands of dollars in Confederate and US currency in a trunk in my grandmother's attic which had been sealed for nearly 90 years.

That attic on the 4th floor was a wonderland of old stuff from 1880 and earlier. The house had a hidden stairway inside the wall that only a child could climb to get to the attic. Once inside, we saw a door which wouldn't open. Our family then made it a project to find the door and open it, which they did after I brought a sword down the stairs. Later, after reading through hundreds of letters in the trunk, we determined that the stairway was used to hide slaves on their way to Canada on the Underground Railway. The house looks to have only 3 stories from the outside but the attic, which has no windows, is there to this day, untouched.

My grandmother died in the 1980s and the house is now owned by other folks. The local historical society has most of the uniforms and clothing. I kept a large bundle of Confederate notes and all of the letters. They've been photocopied for the historical society but I just love to touch them and read them when the mood strikes.

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.
