Tennessee's tales of treasure come from a multitude of sources: Indians mining silver for jewelry and ornaments, outlaws burying stolen loot, lost and hidden Civil War payrolls, personal wealth buried and never to be retrieved, and much more. Like most legend and lore, these stories arose from actual historical events. In time, they were relegated to the back pages of history books and obscure journals and then largely forgotten. Over the years, however, the tales were rediscovered by intrepid researchers as well as the curious. Many attempted to find the lost mines and the buried treasures. A number of them succeeded, but many more remain to be found.
