Those are cool, especially the coins. Would love to see something like that around here (just across from Philly along the Delaware River). I remember reading something a year or so ago regarding an Ironclad ship which i thought was the Monitor or the prototype or something that disappeared and they thought may be in a pile of mud in the river not far from me. That was a little while ago and i dont recall anything coming from it since. I go boating every weekend there on the summer. Pretty interesting stuff.

Actually it was the alligator jr. The prototype to the USS alligator. here's the article (http://www.rc-submarines.com/Alligator_Junior/id26.htm). I actually have my boat stored in that town. LOL. I will have to dig around there.

 

Just though it was kinda interesting. I think those ships are really amazing for that time.

I just sent out the coins for the Manassas cache, it should be up and running soon, as will the Vicksburg cache.

I still need some cachers to sign up to help me out on this project.

 

There is a real nice cache locally to where i go boating right on the delaware river and next to the Rancocas Creek. Would be glad to drop some in there if you would like. It is right by where I was talking about in the post about the Alligator Jr Ironclad having thought to be buried in mud. Or I could always pop in a nice cache in that area if you want. Let me know. PM me. Even closer to me is the Red Bank battle field which is a real nice park with some nice history on the civil war. I know there is one cache in there but not sure on the size.

 

Thanks,
