The Cornfield Cache: Unearthing a Civil War Treasure of Golden Harvest

A man in Kentucky found a treasure trove of over 700 Civil War-era gold coins in a cornfield. The coins date back to between 1850 and 1862 and are worth millions of dollars. The discovery has been dubbed “The Great Kentucky Hoard”. The man who found the coins has not been identified, but he was reportedly digging a hole to plant a tree when he stumbled upon the coins. The discovery has at least partly vindicated legends of lost Civil War gold that have driven American treasure hunters for more than 150 years.

The coins were buried in the ground and are believed to have been hidden during the Civil War to keep them from falling into the hands of Union troops. The discovery is being called one of the most significant finds of Civil War-era artifacts in recent history.
