I found these items today at the Irish Bend and Fort Bisland battlefields in south Louisiana (with landowner permission as always). I'm unsure what the two crescent-shaped things are at lower left. At upper right is a shell fragment; at lower right is a musket ball; and I'm unsure what is at upper left . . . I am wondering if it is not an iron case shot ball. But the odd thing is, it measures .905 caliber. Does anyone know if this is indeed a large case shot ball (or a small grape shot ball)? (It was hard to measure because as you can see it's no longer precisely spherical.)
