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.

PS

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.

Other than Stories being handed down, is there any hard evidence? I live in the small town of Rankin, about 15 miles from where all this supposedly took place and have heard the tales of people searching for the lost treasure. My dad even took us out there to show us everything as a kid, Although we didn't get to look for the lost treasure we did see the wagon ruts as well as a couple of marked graves. Don't get me wrong, I love the idea of treasure being buried out there somewhere as much as the next person. I have been looking and much like the others in the above posts have not found any real evidence. Unfortunately all of this is privately owned and to my knowledge they are not letting "treasure hunters" explore their land.... not that I blame them..

Hi brownbm and welcome to the forum.

I knew was in private land because I have searched it before. Sometimes we just do a research based in the existed clues and using GE aerial images. Another times we would go there to examine the spot if the the circumstances permit. But I believe, the most of us, never will go in private lands to do a digging in regards to find out if is the real deal.
The most times are only opinions in regards to keep alive the legends and to open the appetite of the new treasure hunters generation.
If you are still interested to find Maximillian treasure and if you believe my research could leads you to it, just sent me a PM with your email and I will send you the details, for free. I would be happy to hear you have found it, first for you and second for me, knowing I have did a good research and you have vindicated me.
