There are vast tracks of wilderness in the forest covered hills and mountains of Arkansas. Bob Brewer of Hatfield Arkansas just might have solved the mystery to one of the greatest lost treasures of all time. As a boy Bob would hunt the hills of western Arkansas with his great uncle “Grandpa” Ashcraft.” Often they would come upon a grove of trees with strange craving. Grandpa would say, “If you can figure out the markings you will find some gold.” It took him years but he finally broke the code and found $200,000 in coins which silenced the skeptics.
But this is only the beginning of the story. Bob maintains that his great uncle kept a secret. Across the country and even into Canada similar caches of treasure are hidden. These alleged hordes of hidden treasure were placed there by a group of conspirators bent on bringing down the established government around the Civil War era. The intrigue involves a powerful group of Confederates and northern sympathizers known as the Knights of the Golden Circle. Influential men and even the outlaw Jessie James were committed to the cause. If Bob is right there are dozens of these treasure troves to find. Maybe one is near you! Bob is currently searching in Oklahoma, 80 miles from his Hatfield home. The stash is rumored to be worth $2,000,000 dollars. His story is the basis of a book, “Shadow of the Sentinel: One Man’s Quest to Find the Hidden Treasure of the Confederacy” by Warren Getler and Bob Brewer. Bob is an adviser on the movie “National Treasure, Book of Secrets” with Nicolas Cage which has a similar story line and Bob has appeared on ‘The History Channel’ as well. Don’t ignore those strange markings you come upon, they just might make you rich.
Bob has written many books on his passion of treasure hunting. They are “Shadow of the Sentinel: One Man’s Quest to Find the Hidden Treasure of the Confederacy” by Warren Getler and Bob Brewer and “Some other book titles” by Bob Brewer.
