Treasure: The Mosby’s Treasure in Virginia

Recommended Posts

During one of his many raids during the Civil war, Confederate Commander Colonel John Singleton Mosby found a burlap sack containing $350,000 worth of gold, silver, and family heirlooms. Even though he wanted to take this loot and retire as a rich man, he was unable to do so because he was also responsible for the 38 other men he captured during the raid. So, he told his trusted men to bury the treasure between two large pine trees. Unfortunately, his trusted men were captured and hung and he could never return to his treasure.
