Overview
Legends of lost Revolutionary War gold, hidden colonial silver, buried civil war loot, and more Did Fat Patty Cannon really rob and murder at least 37 businessmen and then bury the stolen gold near her Delaware treasure? Has British General Edward Braddock's lost payroll, secreted by soldiers in a Maryland cave, every been found? Could a workman actually scatter a fortune's worth of emeralds on the ground, thinking the green stones were mere playthings? Comprised of Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania, the Mid-Atlantic States are rich in history, culture, legend, and lore. This twelfth book in W.C. Jameson's Buried Treasure collection offers thirty tales of this region that have remained largely uncollected and unpublished for generations. Lost mines, buried loot, caches of gold and silver ingots, gangsters, Indians, pirates, chests of precious stones--such are the ingredients of a rich stew of folkloric treasure gathered from a melting pot of America. These legends of lost fortunes will teach readers about courage, responsibility and resourcefulness.
