Riassunto: Citizens of Jackson, Tennessee awakened on the morning of February 4, 1859, to discover that the local branch of the Union Bank of Tennessee had been robbed of $17,300 in paper currency and $5,700 in gold coins. Tragically, the bank's clerk, 28-year-old George E. Miller, had been brutally murdered, a canceling hammer he used in banking business smashed into his skull. Despite a diligent search by local authorities, the murderer (or murderers) was never brought to justice. Memories of the unsolved crimes resurfaced-literally-over 125 years later, when city workers unearthed a mysterious cache of gold coins believed to be part of the bank's stolen money. Gold is the Key recounts this fascinating chapter of Tennessee history. It tells not only the life and tragic death of the bank clerk, but life as it was for his family and friends in Jackson and Madison County before the Civil War. Author Thomas L. Aud presents a thorough investigation of the murder and robbery and offers possible suspects and motives to one of the most famous unsolved crimes in Jackson history.
Dall'autore: The horrific and real crimes of murder and bank robbery in 1859 are juxtaposed with the discovery of a buried gold cache in 1985 in Jackson, Tennessee. The mysteries surrounding both intertwine through the complexities of many families over decades of history in a small Southern town. The events mix with politics and dramatic legal maneuverings, told in scattered letters, diaries, court records and newspaper accounts, and depicted in letters and photographs during nine decades of the twentieth century. Over 125 years of local history focused on the events that generated these unsolved mysteries. Many details not directly related to the crimes of 1859 are provided for additional background on people that shaped and surrounded the victim and the local bank's history.
