Mike,

Couldn't agree more. Irresponsible relic hunting has always been a pet-peeve of mine. I'm glad you posted that URL, and I would encourage others to go there to get the scoop. There is such a thing as responsible relic hunting, but this is NOT it. When private property is involved, there are times when RH can be a help rather than a hinderance - relics are uncovered, but not removed, appropriate authorities are called, documentation is achieved, etc. This travesty is none of that. I have to read the page closer, but there has to be something the Civil War community can do. Time is short it seems, so if folks wish to get outraged about something, I second you in saying this should be it. I'll try to do my part, but for those in the area....you need to be there! It's this weekend,and I fear possibly too late. If you're in the area, please stand up for the rest of us!. Thanks for pointing it out Mike.
