    Large Cache Found Years After Sherman's March

    This article from the St. John's Herald newspaper of June 25, 1891 tells of the recovery of a large bank cache that had been buried in advance of Sherman's March to the Sea. This week, I've read numerous old newspaper articles which tell of thousands of families and businesses that buried their valuables for safe-keeping before Sherman's army arrived. Doubtless, many of them still remain where they were originally stashed.

    "Columbia, S.C., June 10. - Great excitement prevails among the people of Kershaw over the finding of $163,000 in gold and other valuable treasure, buried in that neighborhood twenty-seven years ago. When Sherman's army was passing through South Carolina, the officials of the Camden Bank collected the money and jewelry and took it to Hanging Rock Creek, Kershaw County, to bury it...." Read the rest of the story by clicking on the link below. It begins in the 4th column of the page under "Buried Treasure" heading.
