"There are not many left, we dreamers and wanderers...We are a breed of men addicted to danger, adventure, and the quest." Thus begins W.C. Jameson's account of one intrepid man's efforts to find the lost treasures of North America and beyond. Jameson and his partners piece together centuries-old histories through documents, maps, and stories passed down from one generation to the next, facing life-threatening danger time and again. These riveting stories, told with humor and candor, are a portal to another time, and are a testament to the spirited independence of risk-takers, a few of whom still exist in what we think of as the modern age.
After the Civil War, the U.S. Government and the Army embarked on a landmark joint endeavor. For the first time in American history, the federal government itself—led by the Army—compiled a military history. The history was composed of all of the official military documents from both sides of the war, and it proved to be a massive production. Called War of the Rebellion: A Compilation of the Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies, and referred to as the Official Records, or O.R., it contained official reports, letters, telegrams, strength returns, and casualty lists, covering all theaters throughout the war.
