Time Capsule Recovered In Confederate Monument

(St. Louis)-KTRS

It was an ‘Indian Jones’ moment according to Mark Trout, the director of the Missouri Civil War Museum, when they recovered a 102-year old time capsule inside the monument’s foundation .

Trout said a search of archives revealed that the box likely contains civil war-era medals, documents from the Daughters of the Confederacy and a magazine placed inside by one of the soldiers of General Pickett’s Confederate division at Gettysburg.

Trout says the contents of the century-old time capsule will soon be unveiled privately before being displayed publicly at an upcoming fundraiser for the Civil War Museum’s preservation fund.
