Introduction

Author Bob Young presents a story of history, mystery, faith and redemption played out in the closing days of the Civil War. Confederate Treasury Agent Patrick Graham is dispatched to break up a major counterfeiting operation. He falls for the affections of a lonely war widow and is challenged to protect arriving railroad cars filled with the Confederate treasury from Yankee raiders and a local crime boss. ?Fascinating, Engrossing. Counterfeit Union greenbacks, missing Confederate treasure. History, mystery, intrigue. Bob Young has readers thinking.? - Susan Polonus Mucha, Author of Die Before Your Time and Deadly Deception ?Bob Young has written a riveting account of love, loss, and redemption in the closing days of the Civil War that crackles with suspense and drama. For lovers of history as well as quality fiction, The Treasure Train is a must read.? - Ralph Reed, author, historian, political strategist ?Bob Young is perfectly suited to write a book about the Civil War centered in Augusta, Georgia. His time as an Augusta TV anchor gave him a comprehensive view of the city that few individuals possess while his TV work also honed his love of a good story. His experience as Augusta's Mayor provided in-depth understanding of the city from inside city hall. His federal service in Atlanta and Washington and on the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation gave him experience at the national level and showed his leadership in preserving the nation's heritage.? - W. Ray Luce, Past Director, Historic Preservation Division, Georgia Department of Natural Resources ?A great read! The Treasure Train is an intriguing mystery plunged into the swirling chaos of the end of America's Civil War. Bob Young's rich characters pop out from the historical backdrop of the country in crisis, made all the more memorable as the solution to the puzzle in the middle of this tale is revealed.? - Marc Hershon, co-author of I Hate People! ?"I have known Bob Young for over 20 years and am pleased to recommend his book 'The Treasure Train.' His love of local history has led to this very interesting account of counterfeiting Confederate money during the war and the Confederate treasure train. It is a story that any history lover will enjoy very much I am sure. Congratulations to Bob for sharing this story with us!" - Hugh Shull, author of A Guide Book of Southern States Currency
