KNIGHTS'S GOLD: Found Treasure of the Knights of the Golden Circle Book
The largest documented K.G.C. treasure find yet! The amazing but true story of how two Baltimore boys in 1934 unearthed 5,000 gold coins hidden by a secret Confederate organization known as the Knights of the Golden Circle. The Baltimore chapter of the K.G.C. fiercely opposed President Lincoln and was involved in plots to bring about Lincoln's demise.
John Wilkes Booth, who lived just four blocks from the treasure site, was one of the K.G.C.'s most ardent and outspoken members. Includes fascinating material on Confederate Gold, secret societies, and the connection to the hollow mountain of gold and treasure called Victorio Peak in New Mexico.
