Civil War Gold 01

October 1865: The SS Republic, a side-wheel paddle steamship, falls into the deadly embrace of a hurricane one hundred miles off the coast of Georgia. All attempts to save her prove futile and the passengers and crew are forced to abandon ship. Once overboard, the crew is forced to watch the Republic - full of history, memories and precious gold - sink to the bottom of the ocean. Now, after a 12-year long search effort, Odyssey Marine Exploration has located the Republic...and its archaeological investigation of the site has revealed far more than a cargo of priceless coins. The SS Republic is also an amazing time capsule - a window into a little-known period when the fine detail of American history was obscured by the fog of the Civil War.
