Civil War Cannonballs Washing Up On Shore After Hurricane Dorian

 

As Hurricane Dorian blew through the Atlantic coast earlier this month, the high winds uncovered several long ago buried treasures. In Florida, bricks of cocaine washed up on the shores. Further north, South Carolina's Civil War past reared its head. Seashell hunters recently combing Folly Beach found a pair of cannonballs near the area of the old Coast Guard Base, a city spokesperson told Fox News. 

As is protocol, an Explosive Ordnance Disposal team was called out to handle the matter, which wasn't the first time for the barrier island near Charleston. During Hurricane Matthew in 2016, 16 corroded ordnances were discovered. Have you gone looking for buried items on the beach? What have you uncovered?
