One night in February 1859, a crime occurred in Jackson
that has never been solved.
The Union Bank of Tennessee, located where the New Southern Hotel
building is today, was robbed of thousands of dollars in gold and bank notes
and bank clerk, George Miller was brutally murdered.
About 125 years later, gold coins were discovered by accident
at a downtown Jackson construction site.
Were the two events linked???
For the first time, Thomas Aud has researched and brought together
the known evidence to tell the story as completely as possible.
The reader cannot help but analyze the pieces of the puzzle
and deduce who he/she thinks committed the crime, while at the same time,
learning much about the political, social, and cultural environment
in Jackson during the mid 19th century.
