Lost Confederate Gold

Lost Confederate Gold

As the end of the Civil War became imminent, Confederate President Jefferson Davis fled his capital city of Richmond, Virginia. After leading the South for four years, he had high hopes to escape the country and rebuild a new Confederacy. So Davis took with him the entirety of the Confederate Treasury, a massive fortune of gold, silver and bullion. Yet when the Confederate President was finally captured by Union forces, this gold was nowhere to be found.
To this day, speculation runs rampant over the whereabouts and fate of that lost Confederate gold, a mystery that has grown for over a century and a half, spurring the imaginations of historians and treasure hunters alike.

    In his autobiography, General Basil Duke describes the route of the gold. In which he was in charge of protecting. IDK. Abbeville SC seems to be the point where speculation started.

    So not much has changed over the years when it comes to thievery of gold,I doubt much of it is left to be found as it’s all been long spent.

    Interesting, I’m not American, but I am interested in history, anyone’s history, I came across the name Captain Clark relating to the capture of President Davis. Why has this not been made into a movie & yet they made Ghostbusters 2016, comon, everyone likes a treasure hunt, & you slide the words, ‘ based on true events ‘, in there, especially if they are in America, it will probibally rake in more money that the possibly real treasure is worth.
