I

would like to get stories for this newsletter from
members that would interest all. Adventures, funny
things. etc. Here is one from my past:
My wife and I were traveling in the Northeastern
states a few years ago and visited Fort Ticonderoga
which was captured by the Green Mountain Boys
during the Revolutionary War. Along the small road
leading up to the Fort I could see many old trenches
and breastworks back in the woods that must be fuIl
of artifacts from the war. We toured the site at the
top, looked at the canflons, etc. I asked the oflicial in
charge if it would be possible for a metal detecting
group to come in and recover artifacts for the
museum. He said, "No way, this is all PRIVATE
property and the owners do their own searching!"
And I thought it was a National Park. The same thing
happened at Jefferson's home Monticello. That's
private
