Confederate Gold

Legend of
The Lost Confederate Gold
Two crates, each sized about 2’x3’x4′ were filled with gold and silver coins said to be around $100,000 in value and buried by Confederate forces. Some stories say the crates were made of wood, some say metal. The crates were buried when Union forces were approaching as the wagon transporting the treasure became stuck in a bog-hole near Athens Alabama. The cache was made at an 1865 era steam crossing about 4 miles North of of Athens and about 1/2 mile West of the crossing.
