I watched a few Youtube videos of people with metal detectors looking for relics on civil war sites. The often find clumps of lead they call "camp lead". It looks like once molten lead was poured or dumped onto the ground. It seems to be very common. Was this lead melted down to make boolits for muskets and the rest just thrown onto the ground?
Was it common for soldiors to make boolits by the fire at camp during the Civil War?
