Description - The Rebel and the Rose by Wesley Millett

This is the amazing true story behind the disappearance of the Confederate treasury. In April 1865 the American Civil War is nearly over. Overwhelming Union victories force Confederate President Jefferson Davis to flee Richmond, the Southern capital, accompanied by his administration, a small cavalry escort, a few hangers-on, and the remains of the Confederate treasury - which today would be worth millions. Fearing capture, Davis and his companions stopped in Washington, a small town in Georgia untouched by the war. It was here that Davis entrusted navy paymaster James A. Semple with the Confederate treasury. And it is in this small town that the documented history of the Confederate treasury ends.Combining meticulous research with a superbly written narrative, "The Rebel and The Rose" reveals for the first time the amazing true story of the missing gold.
