Confederate president Jefferson Davis stole an estimated $20 million -- by today's value -- in gold and silver during the Civil War, was captured after fleeing Virginia but the loot was missing. Despite countless gold diggers retracing Davis' trail in hopes of striking it rich, the mystery of the missing treasure has persisted for more than 150 years. New evidence has brought together an all-star treasure-hunting team that's ready to dig deep into American history and get to the bottom of the "Rebel Gold" legend.
