A Contribution to My City's History

Two weeks ago a buddy and I went out for our usual Saturday hunt, we had only found a few wheats and couple silver dimes. We finally agreed on going to a spot in the woods we had heard had been an old park and had once been land inhabited by the native Americans. We walked about a half mile into the woods and walked off the trails into the thick brush within 15 minutes I got a very strong signal at 6 inches deep, I grabbed my shovel and dug the hole.
