Hey guys, the gold coins lost would be worth millions today. Is any familiar with the dead river? Or the story behind the lost gold of Benedict Arnold?

never heard that story b4,was about 40mile from that area few years ago
I would have looked into that while there. the river has some white water
looked around, found his route, a map at link,prob more on the expedition
just a quick search

Arnold's expedition to Quebec

Invasion of Quebec (1775)
Arnold's expedition

I had not been to this site since maybe 2015/16, much more organized now than I remember
might be something here rev war docs, thousands are transcribed, but not all
did a search for lost Specie got 1–25 of 517
Papers of the War Department

I opened a couple of the results from pg #1
saw a link to Numbered Record Books, 1775-1798. (RG93) (M853) 1–25 of 345

opened this link,
Miscellaneous Numbered Records (Manuscript file) 1775-1790's. (RG93) (M859) 1–25 of 440

if you search dead river maine, at youtube there are many videos

I have found NO confirming account of gold being lost. Just powder and foodstuffs.
Thanks for the research..
