Brian Mabelitini and I were honored last night by the Kentucky Historical Society by the receipt of the Brigadier Gen. William R. Buster award for military history – specifically our metal detecting archaeology project and paper about discoveries near the Perryville Battlefield State Historic Site.

I’m so appreciative of the nomination by park manager Joni House and support by park history gurus Chuck Lott, Kurt Holman, the amazing Hankla family and letters of support from historians and Archaeologists around Kentucky.
