Dan Elliott, the team’s leader, says the group found a dozen musket balls and rifle parts that revealed the location of Carr’s Fort, a small frontier outpost where patriot militiamen drove out British loyalists during a gunbattle in February 1779. Elliott says his team from the nonprofit LAMAR Institute found the location of Carr’s Fort in February after a month of searching and confirmed their discovery with return trips in March and April.
