Tasso, Tennessee, might be the site of long buried Confederate gold. The reason it is still there after all these years is that it is buried as much as six feet under the ground.
Tasso is located just outside the western boundary of the Cherokee National Forest and about five miles northeast of the town of Cleveland in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains.
Scattered across an agricultural field next to the railroad tracks just south of Tasso may lie an incredible fortune in gold and silver coins, as well as dozens, if not hundreds, of Civil War relics. This long-buried treasure is the bizarre result of a great explosion that disabled a Confederate train during a battle.
The Cherokee Indians who originally settled this region called their small community Chatata, which means clear water. When the Indians were removed during the early 1830

That's a pretty dang cool story.Also sounds a bit like local folk lore and one that would benefit a land ower by him or renting time to detect on. I'm sure detectorists would have uncovered much more over the years if it were indeed true. I say......

At birth, God bestowed upon each of us the most important responsibility there will.
