Something more about the map the Confederate soldiers have made of the Maximilian treasure?
The legend says how in the maps clues are depicted a lake and a specific mark which the doctor and attorney were not able to find.
In regards the legend with the clues to the Maximilian treasure hidden by the Confederate soldiers, I believe the mark made by the soldiers was a cross which one of its arm has two diagonal lines at one end, and its shape promts to an arrow image, This specific arm of the cross, points to the magnetic south of that era.
What made me think this mark would be the same the Confederate soldiers left, was the fact I posted an GE image with that mark in this forum in two different dowsing threads, and two dowsers pointed at the same spot, each of them in a different thread. This is the image I posted and you can see the dowsers to mention about the spot at http://www.treasurenet.com/forums/dowsing/640717-special-map-dowsing-request.html#post6593095. The mark is in the green circle.
I found that mark somewhere close to Castle Gap and after I did a measurement of the elevation from the cross mark to the alleged treasure spot, and I found how starting from the midlle of the cross, the terrain drops dows for about 3-4 feet to the west or down like you will see as a green line in the next image, and at the treasure spot forms a narrow hook, which maybe was the reason the soldiers choose that place to hide the loot.
Just my two cents of my 15 minutes of fame.
There is and something else related to the second legend's clue, the dried lake, which make sense if use it in combination with the treasure spot and Castle Gap.
