Hi y’all,

I’ve been browsing through tn for a bit now but finally decided to give in and sign up. Not sure if this is in the right section on the forum either… Does anyone have any good treasure legends of North Georgia/Forsyth county, or hell, even Savannah? I know the Dahlonega mint and the red banks Indian tribes are notorious in treasure stories.

Thanks!

There are two books I would recommend. Cry of the Eagle by Forest Wade and Georgia's Fabulous Treasure Hoards by Ernest Andrews. Most of the legends surround gold hidden by the Cherokee's prior to the Trail of Tears and lost mines. Though there are a few civil war legends. I am in Forsyth County and working on a couple.
