Rigorous documentary research, information from relic collectors, and a metal detector survey supplemented more conventional archaeological methods at this Confederate encampment. This report represents a case study for treating such ephemeral Civil War sites with low archaeological visibility and how they can be best approached from a cultural resource management standpoint. Despite small numbers of intact features and low artifact density, such sites can reveal important spatial information based on distribution mapping and sampling of metal detector targets.
