Discovery Update Civil War Chicago

Yesterday, the metaphorical light.  Today, the metaphorical dark, and the dig for remains.  Yesterday was also the last day of the first of three Camp Douglas sites to be excavated.  The excavated area was known as Garrison Square, headquarters for many a man.  


The first excavation endeavor?  Worth it.  They found something.  Something significant, and something that will shine a light of hope for the remainder of the Camp Douglas Restoration Foundation's time, spent in the search for artifacts.  


This indeed is factual yet I shall wait for further conclusive results before the full disclosure of what an archaeologist would label as 'metaphorical gold', in the context of an official archaeological dig.


The hot spot - Chicago's near South East side with the first week's dig near 31st and Rhodes.  More to Come!
