Date: February 7, 2004
From February 6-9, 2004, Archeologists from the Southeast Archeological Center (SEAC) in Florida and several volunteers from a North Carolina metal detecting club tried all weekend to find General Green’s 1781 campsite. Nothing was found, but several sites were ruled out. Greene’s campsite remains illusive.
