Hello; I live in Arizona and I find it interesting that there is very little info about the Indian wars. Most of the battles here in Arizona. occurred between the US Military and the native Americans. The only civil war battle fought here was the battle of Picacho Peak in the southern part of the state. My town was the home of Fort Verde and there has been quite a few relics found here associated with those battles. Later I will post some pics of those relics that I have found.
   Most of the military artifacts found, that were associated with the Indian wars, are the same as those found on civil war battle sites, with a few exceptions.
 I would like to here from folks that have found relics from the west that were associated with those battles.

Indian "battles" were more like skirmishes, over in a day or two at most. When you consider that Gettysburg lasted a lot longer than a few days and involved tens of thousands of troops, you can see why it gets more attention. Early Indian skirmishes had only one side using metal objects which were very, very precious in the frontier west. Getting a replacement gun or rifle could take many months. Losing one by dropping it was a death sentence.

Today, when I leave the house or lock my car, I pat myself down to be sure I know where wallet, keys and essentials are before I lock the doors to either. If I considered my weapons equally important, I'm quite certain I would to the same to be sure I knew where all of my "inventory" was and if it was secure. Thus, I can see why there are far fewer lost items in the frontier west except around home sites.

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.
