There is an old trunk on display in Washington, GA. There are many legends… In 1902, the trunk was found in the basement of the bank in Washington, the building where Jefferson Davis held the last meeting of the Confederate Cabinet. In 1928, it was donated to the library where it was put on public display. In 1948, a renowned locksmith from Atlanta came to open the trunk. Legend has it that this trunk once held the missing Confederate gold. He found one coin – a Federal nickel.

All his life, Thomas Jackson, the American Civil War Confederate General, wrestled with the moral dilemma that slavery posed. As his wife, Anna, wrote "before the war, 'Stonewall' had preferred that the negroes should go free". Although he owned slaves, most were old and unfit to work. Many had begged Jackson to purchase them. For his mastership was a welcome alternative to a life of starving that was their fate otherwise.

The Civil War Cotton Conspiracy became an issue when Federal Revenue Agents determined to follow the money. Money has always driven politics and politicians have always driven war. Before the Civil War, the south’s cotton crop represented nearly 70% of the United States exports, approaching $200 million a year.

It would be extraordinarily naive to even consider the possibility that a family as ambitious, as cunning and as monopolistically minded as the Rothschilds could resist the temptation of becoming heavily involved on the American front. Following their conquest of Europe early in the 1800s, the Rothschilds cast their covetous eyes on the most precious gem of them all -- the United States.

The story of this haunting first aired in October of 1988 on the television show Unsolved Mysteries. I remember it distinctly because of a statement James Tatum made when he was interviewed about the haunting he and his wife, Katherine had experienced in their new 2-story home outside Atlanta, Georgia.
