Where Did all the Southern Dough Go? Coins, Currency and the Last Furious Days of the Confederacy


Multi-Media Summary

As the Confederate treasure train took flight - from Danville, VA to Washington, GA - Mexican Silver, $50 dollar gold pieces, bank loot, British Sovereigns, and thousands of copper coins were parsed out, purloined and bushwhacked. A trail of tales - including General Joe Johnston salutations on the last CSA payroll to Jeff Davis "flight medals" - were all part of the numismatic lore and legacy. Presented at the Newman Numismatic Portal Symposium, a virtual event conducted October 15-17, 2021. See for further information. Speaker: Rick Lank.
