Is there buried treasure in the Lee statue in Richmond?

But if it is like the few recently opened in New England over the past couple of years, the treasure will be newspaper articles, money, stuff like that.
Yep. The things that we think are important and interesting today, to preserve for future generations, are likely not going to be very interesting (at all) to people 50, 100, or 300 years from now.

Naw, it's got to be that invisible letter of Lee's to the invisible empire - only place it could be since nobody's seen it! Either that or it's the fabled Confederate gold...don't think they had much left to hide so a shoe box might do it... :wink:

Another picture of Lincoln's coffin would indeed be interesting - there was one taken somewhere along the funeral route besides the one Stanton took. Think Stanton got ahold of it but who knows...maybe he didn't get all the copies.

Myself, I'd just as soon let the capsule mellow a few more decades.
