Graball Road – The True Story of the Civil War’s Greatest Mystery, The Lincoln County Gold Train Robbery of 1865
One of enduring legends of the Civil War is the robbery of a wagon train carrying nearly a half million dollars in gold and silver coins through Lincoln County, Georgia in the summer of 1865. The raid, pulled off by destitute Confederate veterans, resulted in a manhunt climaxed by the torture of a planter family by a fanatical Union General. GRABALL ROAD breaks down the crime with documents, eyewitness testimony and facts that separate the truth of the event from 150 years of myths and rumor.
