    • This arrowhead monument is located in Old Fort NC. It is 30ft tall and hand carved from local granite. It was dedicated July 27 1930 to a crowd of 6000. It is a dedication of peace between the pioneers and local Native Americans. The Cherokee and Catawba tribes attended and formally smoked the pipe of peace for the first time in History. They were traditionally bitter enemies. Chief Tahquitte represented the Cherokee while Chief Sam T. Blue represented the Catawba. Click image for larger version

          We have those crazy birds too. We have two of the plastic owls we hang every summer. One on the porch and one in the top of the bay door on hubby 's shop. They build mud nests in the side of the house and make a mess. But the mockingbirds are aggressive! They drive my dogs crazy!

          They are trying to build a mud nest on my front door right now. I just painted my deck to. They poop all over the place. The one year I let them nest and they swoop down on you every time you go in and out the door. Every since I don’t let them nest and it’s a fight every year

          The birds around my house are crazy about their nest I have to put my plastic owl on my front porch so they don’t build their nest on my rock walls. I’m thinking they liked eating the bugs off the grill and decided it was easy food. I had to reach my hand through the grill to remove it cause the grill is sealed underneath

          Ha ha, well maybe. I took my brothers 2008 camera, and it works great! I couldn't take mine. It would be ruined with that rusty dirt.

          • Yankee eagle buttons, Eagle "I" and New York state seal button dug on private property next to Chancellorsville Virginia by my dad. For years, they sat in a box with green crud on the faces, and the New York button was barely legible. I took a SOFT BRASS wire brush to them, and took the crud off while leaving the chocolate patina beneath.

            NEVER do this to buttons with gilding, if it's rare or if it is anything other than brass, or it it is mostly worn. I could get away with this because the bristles on the brush were brass and the soil conditions were different in that part of the state. Brass bristles won't scratch a brass button face. It has to be somewhat soft though. Just please, try it out on a crappy button first before you try it on something of value.

              If you have a button that is showing some gilt, soak it in lemon juice or vinegar for a couple of minutes then rinse under running water while you lightly brush it with a soft toothbrush. If it needs more cleaning then simply repeat the steps until it is like you want it to be. Just remember that it is easy to over clean just about anything, so be careful.

              Yes, you never brush a gilted button with a wire brush. I will put a pic up of an un-cleaned example, so you can see what kind of button you can do this on.

              And for heavens sake, don't clean anything valuable!

              I just googled Luna Moth and my pic comes right up. If you post a pic can anyone take it and not give you any reconnection for it? I’d like to get paid 😃

            Here is a peek at some of my Civil War relic collection. My dad found some, and I have been gifted a few, and bought the rest. Bullets are my favorite though.
