Someone just brought this to my attention. In March of 1858, Brigham Young received word that the U.S. Cavalry, commanded by General Albert Sidney Johnston was en route to invade Salt Lake City. Young loaded-up all the Mormon gold and silver to escape the government headed for San Bernardino, CA. Young's wagon train full of gold and silver was attacked by Indians somewhere near Las Vegas. I'm guessing that some of the Mormons hastily buried some of the bullion in the vicinity of the attack. I'm trying to figure out where this attack took place, does anyone have any info on this event? Thanks!
