Legendary Lost Civil War Gold May Have Been Found In Pennsylvania

Recommended Posts

It's the stuff of legend: A wagon from the Union Army supposedly lost a huge cache of gold bars while en route from Wheeling, West Virginia, to the US Mint in Philadelphia in 1863.

More than 150 years later, the FBI is overseeing a dig in a Pennsylvania state forest where the famous loot might be buried, reports the AP.

The dig is taking place at Dense Run, 135 mi NE of Pittsburgh?  If the wagon were headed for the Phila Mint, it's a little off course.

lots of rumors of why the gold would be there, but the feds have in the past found and removed MANY treasures and so this is not new, also the ones i know of that they recovered have never been addded to the coffers, they always were absorbed, one huge one they took was the Victorio Peak (doc Noss) treasure it was taken and flown to President Johnson's ranch, some went to to the base commander at Hollowman AFB,

much more have been done like this as well!

I'd love to see the feds get all the bars unearthed and then a we'll armed militia robs them for them

Historians have been skeptical about the story over the years, but Finders Keepers says it has found artifacts at the site suggesting Union soldiers were there.

The group also says metal detectors suggest something is buried there. Whether the lost gold is a tall tale or a genuine treasure should be known soon.
