Possible Civil War munition found in Spring Hill

On Monday Feb. 26, 2018 a homeowner on Oakridge Drive called the Sheriff’s Office to report an object he found while digging in his yard. Deputies identified it as a possible munition and called the Citrus County Bomb Squad and Macdill Air Force Base for assistance.

The individual from MacDill AFB indicated the object may have possibly been a munition from the Civil War era and removed it.

During the Civil War, known conflicts in Hernando County include the Battle of Bayport and the Brooksville Raid.
