"My uncle Tom Dickey's great passion was The Civil War. Whenever he could, he'd take an old army surplus mine detector out onto the battlefields to find bits of 19th-century ordnance: MiniƩ balls, shrapnel and unexploded projectiles. Eventually the walls of his rec room were lined with neatly catalogued artillery shells and other treasures dug up from yards in Atlanta, swamps in South Carolina, even pulled from the bottom of Louisiana bayous. The concrete floor of his basement looked like an ammo dump. His collection gained fame among military historians, and Tom wrote an authoritative illustrated treatise about the ordnance which is on the shelves of many academies and specialty libraries. Tom died in 1987, but much of his collection is now on display at The Atlanta History Center."
