Hello history lovers,

Attached is a PDF article released from the Washington Historical Museum of our discovery of treasure and relics from the May 24, 1865 gold wagon train robbery on the Moss plantation in the Graball, Georgia area. Today is the 157th anniversary of the robbery – the most famous in the state of Georgia. Our relic hunting team had been at this for almost two years and finally we can go public with the finds. Enjoy the thrill, it's one helluva story!

Best,
Michael Karpovage
