Once again I was able to meet some interesting and very knowledgeable people like my friend John DeSalvo, Mark Stout, and Warren Getler. Warren has delved deep into finding the locations of the hidden KGC gold and silver stashes and proved to my satisfaction the KGC still has vast wealth hidden in many locations that is still being guarded by loyalists.
This episode also gave me a chance to again work with another good friend from Minnesota, Don Shelby. I know Don enjoyed sharing the history behind his ancestor and Confederate General, Joe Shelby. It was also fun for both of us to get on horses for one of our scenes even though I don’t consider myself a cowboy. Don was very comfortable riding and had a near permanent smirk watching me try to keep up with him. After a long and successful career as an investigative journalist and local television anchor, he didn’t agree to appear on our show “to be on TV.” He’s doing for fun and all of us associated with America Unearthed appreciate the opportunity to work with a real pro!
I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the uncanny coincidence of the airing of our episode with the announcement of the discovery of 10 million dollars in gold coins by a couple in California. While not enough information has been released to know for sure, I wouldn't be the least bit shocked if the cache was related to Knights of the Golden Circle. If this was a KGC cache of gold, there likely are many more out there!
