The Confederate Treasury, Rebel Gold and the History Channel

This is another heads up for our readers. Once again the History Channel is tackling the big question, did the Confederates have any money left over at the end of the war and if so, what happened to it? Did it become part of a mega-money KGC vault? (It really is hard to say that with a straight face you know.) Did the Confederate forces hide it themselves? Was it paid out to the people the South owed at the time? Did the Union forces steal it and hide it or did it even ever exist?

This Thursday at 9:00 p.m. central time you may at least get some of the answers. Brad Meltzer's Decoded is going to take on the investigation of this myth/conspiracy/rumor/possibility to see what they can find.

I hate to keep giving the History Channel free advertisement but this show has captured my attention. Maybe they are trying to make up for that debacle of a treasure show they aired about Jesse James and the KGC.

The team of people on "Decoded" investigate the conspiracy theories of our history and they do so in a logical and straight forward manner. They don't always have a complete answer by the end of the show but they do seem to ask the right questions and come to a logical conclusion.
