Robbery of 630 Million in Silver and Gold and then some...

 As I have said many times before, I am not a treasure hunter, however I understand if you do not agree...

The following is the original text document (With Some Names Changed) given to me TWICE in 2002, the first time was given to me by a friend whom I am quite sure did not know how to even begin to unravel it... A man named Jim Phillips who some of you have no doubt heard of... approached my friend  some years prior seeking help, Jim begrudgingly left my friend with the document, but 15 minutes later he decide not to leave it, turned his car around and returned to get it, but to late... my friend had made a copy when it was left with him for those short minutes...

Jim had a partner... The Partner became a friend of mine, very few of my treasure friends even know he exists... Not many months later after receiving the following document the first time, the partner came to me one day and presented the same document however he had the names left blank. It was actually quite comical when I looked at the document for a minute and said to him, "I know this document" he immediately responded, "Thats Impossible".... so I told him I could prove it by filling in the blanks.... as I read it back to him but filling those blanks in he became red faced and began to cuss... he and his partner Jim had always suspected that the man who Jim left the copy with had made a copy which he gave his oath that he would not when it was left with him....

After having the English translation which I had now received twice, and unable to control myself in my now quest to discover the location of the primary Coral, I ordered some maps of the area... they arrived but I had not yet opened them but took them to work with me to study while waiting for sub contractors to show up to get paid... One of the subs came into the coffee shop where we generally met and sat down... I realized I had never asked him what part of Mexico he was from, and so I asked... as it turned out he was from the very area in question and so I asked him if he would look at some maps I had.. he agreed and I went out to my truck and brought them in... Upon rolling out the maps his eyes got wide... he said "where you get these maps?" I explained and asked why? He said before he came to the states he had worked for the very company who made the modern maps.. he explained his job was to verify place names found on the maps... shocked I began to ask him if he knew where certain place names were... he would answer yes and with his finger would circle the areas he remembered... Had I looked closer at the maps, I would have seen the very place names I was looking for... but it would be another year or so before I had noticed that his circling finger on the maps was pretty much on point. He had lived within miles of a billion dollar cache and although had heard of the banditos hiding caches around the area he grew up in... he had never heard the story of Majoma or the several Captains I would soon learn of.

Since receiving this following document, and after monitoring the prime Mexico Treasure Hunting forum for several years, one day I decided to post the Captains name which I knew none of them had heard of... I was contacted by a man in Mexico recognized the Captains name, after talking back and forth over the two documents mine in English and his in Spanish, we exchanged documents.  The copy he shared with me was a typed copy of the original Spanish  which he himself had typed in about 1970 from the original hand written document held by the descendants of Captain Valentine and which he personally knew... I have since lost contact with him... There are explainable differences in comparing the two, but clearly they are of the same source.

After reading this, some of you will begin to understand why I am so drawn to this project... 5 of the cache locations mentioned within, I have located...

At this time I seek a partner[s]... and it isn't as complicated as so many have made it, even Jim was looking in the wrong place but he was much closer than those who have sought after it living in Mexico. Had Jim searched 15 years later, with the current maps not yet made, he would have no doubt found it... 

Others? I am perplexed... why do so many build brick walls right in front of themselves, and then spend years trying to find a way around it.... When I find that right partner[s] I will show them every detail, every map  in a personal presentation showing positive proof and if they are not 100 % convinced as I am, they can go their merry way, and I will find another... ;-)

Over the years I have found one report in 1907 of a discovery found in the area, its contents were described and an estimated value was placed on it of 4 million, a value today would be 360 million. However it does not match 3 of the identified caches but comes close to one other. The described robbery in the following document is estimated conservatively, 630 million and this is not taking into consideration the many robberies cached in the same cavern for near 200 years by previous Captains and a 5th location we will not mention at this time.

The land owner whom we have communicated with and met with knows its out there on his property but does not know exactly where it is... others have tried he said... and we do know there are several cache locations out there.

If you are in a stable position and have the desire to become a part, physical or monetary,  I seek financial support at this time... anyone truly qualified, I invite to contact me for discussion... tuscoro@gmail.com

There are notations made in the following copy translated presumably by Jim, from a Zerox copy of the original hand written document... these notes indicate missing portions or un-intelligible potions,  the typed from original copy is complete with all missing potions with no un-intelligible portions... The missing portion reveals a previous unknown cache. The more you see and learn about this, the more you understand why it remains undiscovered...

Oh, did I mention there is an original map involved? ;-)

If you are still wondering how I could not possibly be a treasure hunter... let me say this which you would never hear from a treasure hunter.... I'd be happy with a meager 10% of any of the finds, the smallest is estimated at 20 Million. keep in mind, the land owner is "entitled to 50% the other 50% goes to the finder, (according to Mexico law). Are we beginning to see the benefits of Mexico? If you choose to be a minor partner, $1000 will get you 1% of what I get if successful, no promises... 5% is taken, 5% is left of the 10% of total I am seeking...

But I can be bought ;-) If you choose to be a major partner, I seek 10% of what YOU get with you taking the finder position...negotiable... send email to set up phone call for clarity...

If you are in a stable position to become a part, I seek financial support at this time... anyone truly qualified, I invite to contact me for discussion... tuscoro@gmail.com

Most Common Questions asked...


Q. How would you get it back to the United States?

A. #1. The simple answer is by truck or Utilities Helicopter.

A. #2. Why would you want to? Credit is much easier to move.


Q. What about the taxes you would have to pay 

A. What about them? How much do you really need? Pay them. But seek financial investments experts’ advice, and consider setting up a foreign corporation based in Mexico and why not Canada? Seek advice.


Q. What about the corruption in politics and the Cartels in Mexico?

A. Is there a difference between the two?

Did you really just ask that question considering the events here in 2020? I have friends in Mexico who only hear the bad going on here and they are nervous or afraid about coming here, if you focus on the bad fomented by the media then run and hide, what was staged in California, Portland, Seattle and the North East isn’t happening here… I too was once afraid of my own shadow.   


Q. Would we have to go down there personally?

A. If you want to, it would be fun, but you don’t have to, I have a plan, but could use help in refining it. I am not a damned treasure hunter… but I do understand if you do not believe that… ;-)

The first 1777 Document I received... 

(With some names Changed)

I, Valentine Castrillon, was the Captain of a gang of bandits from the year 1777 until1790. Today I declare as a general confession, which I make in the name of Almighty God.

Leaving Nombre de Dios  to go to the "Hacienda de la Punta de los Padres" which is east to Nombre de Dios and arriving at that "Hacienda" along the "Camino Real: which goes to Mexico City by way of the "Puerto Colorado de Tortuga" and which in those times, or years, was only traveled on mule back, on horseback, or on foot, the only road on which. I and everyone else traveled to get to the "Hacienda del Boca" or to the capitol of Mexico, a road which everyone in that area knew because it was constructed with pick, shovel and crowbar, and over which we traveled to rob the Spanish caravans carrying gold, silver and metals through Mexico City to Spain, and since this was the only road through the interior of the Republic that everyone had to travel. So now, along that road between the "Hacienda del Boca" and the Puerto Colorado del Tortuga," there was a well known place in those parts called "La Lajita," and along that road are many crosses placed in piles of rock which those piles of rock must be personal markers which have been placed there, since that place is and has been just right for assaulting, killing and robbing anyone passing there with their possessions, which we took from them. We would then flee as best we could. 

One day we placed some of those crosses there and little by little they became numerous and notable for those we killed, until one day we assaulted a caravan of 12 mule trains, laden with gold discs and silver bars, an assault that became notorious because of the great amount and value of the gold and silver and because of the fierceness of the battle and the number of people killed. Ten trains carried silver and two carried gold. Those two trains with the other ten were made up in round numbers of 40 pack mules each. The 80 mules making up the two trains carrying the gold, strangely enough, were pinto animals shod with silver shoes. The Spaniard who was the head driver of the gold bearing trains said, before he died, that the reason for the special mules distinctively shod was that General Barron de Villamoco, Lord and owner of the great mines of Sonora, Baja California, and Tamazula was sending this shipment to his Queen Isabel in Spain as tithing which was the reason for sending it this way. The ten trains carrying silver were caravans from Guarizona, El Pilar, Gavilanes, San Dimas, Tal yal ta, El Naran jal, Metalitos, Tahuaheto, El Alto, and others from Topia and other places not necessary to name. The two detachments of soldiers were Spaniards protecting the interest of Spaniards. We attacked them at "La Lajita," where I said there were many crosses, and 62 men died there, between drivers, soldiers, and 23 more of our men, and I think the signs I mentioned are there for that reason.

After we had taken the loaded animals, as they were, and had left them at the Majoma Corral, we put some more crosses at La Lajita where the battle was fought. To find the Corral you go; from the first crosses I had mentioned, The Camino Real goes toward the "Hacienda, del Boca" and to other places I have already said, and from there, going little by little to the North and on the left side of the road just mentioned, there is a little indentation where a pond forms when it rains and a little farther ahead, along the same route, two more little ponding areas separate somewhat from each other, which we called the "Twins" and in the same direction, because where I am telling about, there is no road but only these signs. Well then, in the last of the three indentations or ponding areas, which is the principal identifying point I am using, you stand looking towards the east until you are sure you are thus facing, then you make a half turn towards the left facing to the north from where you see a hill called the "Cerro de San Diego," the only hill in that direction. Walking in that direction over a rocky ridge and once that difficulty is past, you walk until you come specifically  to a very long fissure, crack, or ravine filled with heavy brush, called the "Habra de los Magos" which defied passage at any point, making it a difficult barrier. Since we were familiar with this obstacle, we took the packs off from the mules and began searching for a spot where we could get through with the mules with their packs on their backs, so with the kitchen equipment brought by the drivers, we worked on getting out rocks and on cutting of limbs and prickly pear plants, an operation taking a day and a night and resulting in the death of the drivers wounded earlier and in their bodies being buried in the ravine. Drivers we had taken with us to help pack up and unpack the mules and who were not to know where we were taking the treasures were killed and buried there and thus filled up the ravine so we could take the packs and the animals over the top along with the riding mules we had with us. Standing on the fill we could look forward toward the north and see the "Blanco Hill". We could see rock structures on a rocky ridge which were called bulwarks and counting the ten of them and between the 9th. and 10th, which should still be there, being made of stone to a good height and well put together, there was a structure made of red rock which was strange because it was not local rock, but was stone from the red hill called "Ca jal" on the ranch named "The Ranch of  El Rojo". We took from there a large slab of rock, dragging it with. ropes attached to saddle horns and pack saddles on the mules and after a great deal of difficulty and several days of work., keeping out of sight as best we could, we arrived at our destination and then worked on the stone again, giving it the form of a big thin wheel or millstone, thus making it lighter in weight, for both us and the animals could have gone no farther. The real reason for dragging it and working on it was to cover a hole like a cave that was, in a corral. I will talk about this later, but since this hole had a round opening it occurred to u s to take that formed stone there and shape it to the mouth of the hole, but after the first shaping it did not fit so it needed a second which did make it fit and we placed it and covered the opening of the hole which is full of gold in that small corral at Majoma. Gold accumulated over many years which some years ago which was being added until the two "atajos" (Load) carried by the pinto mules filled it up letting it be known that I was not the first Captain of the bandits which in earlier times there were others with their bandits who carried out the first robberies and who were filling up the hole with gold. 

My career as a bandit, as I told you, began because in those years the famous Captain J. Marcia died from a wound, he being a very brave Indian and the one who left me in his place. 

Standing on the last of the ten bulwarks I am talking about, and which are not spaced exactly as to distance, then walking northward, but not very far, one comes to a branching off of the "Malpais" and finds oneself heading onto such a ridge which leads down from a higher and larger ridge of broken country covered with brush and weeds, that is to say, like a plateau branching off from the main chain of mountains in that broken country. At that point and that corral we naturally took the herd of mules with their loads of gold and silver, as with other frequent robberies carried out at different places, pointing out that in those years there was no known road or trail Leading to our gold storage place and that we found our way solely by signs and reference points as I have given them. With regard to the Location and use of a much discussed corral and storage place called "Majoma", when we took the mules there with their Loads of gold and silver, our intention was that locked up there they would die of starvation. 

We did not have riding animals and so we moved around on foot and we went wherever we thought best, over the desert, the rough places of the "brena" (rock covered and brush covered ridges and mountains), wherever we felt like going and staying out of sight. So when we made an assault we planned it all out and when we could see that we could not success fully carry it out, we did nothing. So we would always see the ones we were robbing without them ever seeing us. Many times we would return to our hideouts where we always had plenty of food stuffs for prolonged periods, so we supplied ourselves well and would never run out of supplies. We had water nearby from a little spring that never ran dry, but disaster followed us or God wanted to put an end to so much crime and despite the fact that we were in such a deserted area, we were never able to make another robbery after that of the 12 companies, so that one was our last. Finally, they had pursued us until they ran us out of our mountainous retreat and made us leave those treasures we had hidden there, including other hiding pits and caves in those hills and it became necessary to leave there. I left with 19 of my companions, all that were left of my gang, because when some would go to ranches to get something they needed to eat, they would be killed or would not come back, and when they were able to flee they would be wounded because the persecution became so intense that we had to hunt deer of which there was an abundance there, and in order that they not find us and kill us we decided to Leave and go to the town of Huachinango which some of us who were left had come from, while other native born ones, as the Spaniards called us, were from Nombre de Dios, Little del Estado Nombre de Dios, others from Zacatecas, some from Saltillo and Monterrey, and others from far away places, who little by little were being killed and so those of us who were left decided to leave. We were united from two bands, the only ones left at that time in the state along two roads being traveled at that time and along the main road or trail leaving Nombre de Dios passed through Fray, Diego, or Monte de San Ignacio y Calera, Chorro, Arzate, Porfias de Los Angeles, Belmontes de Ca Brena, Penuelas def Saucillo, Pedernal, Las Asters, Boca Zarco y Estan Zualas, many points on the way to the Capital of the Republic and others that I have already identified. I have said that one passes through San Martin, Anabaco yan, Contreras, Arenal, Las. Viboras and "Hacienda del Boca" and on to Saucillo and Estanzuela, etc, etc. Our two gangs were made up of  86 men. Half set out on the road to Belmontes under the command of Captain don Juan France Gamboa, a native of Profias near Nombre de Dios and I had the rest. When, after many days, neither Gamboa or any of his men returned, we waited some days more and when we knew what had happened, we left our mountain retreat, taking some precautions, for fear that some or our own men who had been taken prisoner might turn us in, we left our mountains toward Graceros and when we arrived there that night we were met by Spanish detachment who fired on us, Leaving only ten of us who were fortunate enough to escape, our having Learned before that our poor companions and Gambo had all been killed just out of Belmontes by a force in the hills along the Camino Real. And so, I will not talk. about this so I can go on to other things without making my story too long. 

The red stone which I said we had moved, with great difficulty, to the place indicated because there was no road or path over which to move it, and which we had worked on in one place and another and from there rolling it to the approach of the small corral of Majoma. I will now say that there were two corrals with the same name which we identified as the big corral and the little corral, with some distance between the two, that of some 400 horses steps in the same direction on the same hill I referred to. The large corral has it's gate on the lower side facing the rising sun and to get to the center of the corral our first thought was to cover it and to cover everything there as that in other deposits. Some things we were able to cover but others we were not able to cover because my companions and I were never able to return, not because they were pursuing us but because they had put us in jail to pay with our lives for what we had done, for at the large bridge in the state of Jalisco, we were apprehended when we were robbing a gold shipment that some drivers were taking to the Real del Mezquital del Oro and without doing more that taking us prisoner, they took us to Guadalajara to shoot us and what they have been doing is to kill us one at a time until I am the only one Left, perhaps that I may tell them where we left  what we had stolen and that I might turn in some more of my companions. The only thing I give is my confession to my confessor. 

In the little corral at Majoma is everything. Around the corral we opened a trench like that for a house foundation with a depth of 1/3 vara and about 3/4 of a vary wide and we filled it just with silver bars and discs used at that time, covering it with dirt and garbage, supposedly not very deeply covered, except that over time the covering may have increased. 

At the center of the little corral, which is the one I am referring to, the red stone was shaped and placed over the hole to cover the very large wealth in gold buried there, will be found upon raising the red rock stab. A little box with two Holy Christ's wrapped in paper, which have been there a very long time, and which Judging by their weight we considered to be gold.

(rest of paragraph unintelligible)

One has a seashell cross and the other of bone or ivory. While at the large corral, known as the Majoma Corral, there are several caves. where we lived. In each of those caves one of the gang had lots of money in. pesetas, fifty cent pieces and strong pesos of the time of Charles V and medios and reales of silver and a number of gold shields, that they kept separately and were proud to have and which each kept in his sleeping area: I point out again that the amount of wealth left there is beyond measure, though I do not know how to count we calculated that there were a number of millions of pesos because as my companions of the first gang said to me, when we had more time to talk, that former gang members in other deposits in the area (other corrals and caves of "Picacho Colorado" said as older bandits that in those corrals there are treasures buried as long ago as 1605, and that without a doubt they exist, because I saw it piled up everywhere and I and my companions covered it with our own hands, to be enjoyed by God knows who, and infinity of square money, coins with cropped off corners, round coins, and every shape in the corrals of the "Mesa del Dinero" as in many caves in the hills and mountains.


There is a cross as the center of the corral: I never knew who put it there but all of us were in the habit of after every robbery, putting in front of it a pile of pesos in a show of respect and petitioning help through our trials. After we put down small change, then gold and silver, then discs, until there was no room to put them. I assure you that the Holy Cross has money there enough to make anyone rich, even though that cannot be there any more because it was in plain sight, but there are some little boxes that the first companions told me were coffers. One of those little boxes is lined with copper on the inside and on the outside. The cover is encrusted with many little pearls and sparkling stones which must be of value because the y shine brightly even in the dark. The box has rings, chains, some with medals, some with hair clippings, and others that I cannot name. The other little box was locked and covered with silk stitching and had some gold braid and was very heavy. My first companions that I knew and Captain Murcia told me that it was locked because what that little box contained was worth more than all the gold and the silver all together in all the corrals of the "brena" (those hills and mountains) and what it contained was gems and diamonds which I never saw because of carelessness, but those little boxes are there. They told me the following story.


The first bandits known in the region were some ten Zempoaltecas Indians who were always spying on the King, Juan de Mendoza y Lana, or on some of those in his retinue, to kill them in revenge since at the time of the conquest and they always followed him very closely.


"I swear before this crucifix in my hand" and God who sees me and hears me, that it is true that the treasure of the Corrals of Majoma is there, along with various others in that countryside and I also want to say that as there is a God, it is true that if anyone finds and obtains this treasure, it will be a blessing to me, for with a little will and good faith and knowing the terrain or along with someone who does know all of that well, and guided by all of the signs or indications that I give, although some of them may not exist anymore, for there are many corrals in which treasures were buried but none are the same for when. one has been in other places none of them are like those at Majoma. This one is the "Trigo Corral" that one is the "Remudadero Corral" and several others that are calf pens that have a fence at the gateway, while only those of the "Mesa del Dinero" and those of Majoma are made by mother nature, as is the case of the "Corral Falso" that are veritable. rock piles in the entrance to which are discernible only as one arrives at the gate, because we disfigured or camouflaged them when we left there. Finally I will not further tire the one to whom. I give this map and to whom I am explaining what exists there, for if they find everything that is there, let it be to the benefit of those who find it, that they may take advantage of it, for thus-----­


Another corral that also leads to the Majoma Corrals, going home from Belmote to the "Blanco Corral" of the "Mezcaleros" by way of "la Habra del Vapor" although I feel sure that you are less apt to find the corrals, the best route being, in my concept, the one I explained before, using better known places, those less deserted thus lessening the difficulties. It was always our intention to return to Nombre de Dios or rather to the Majoma Corrals to obtain that treasure and everything at the "Corrals of Magos, mesa de Dinero, of Pacacho Colorado, Cuevecillas and El Durazno", but since man proposes and God deposes luck had it that we should never return to those paths to achieve what had cost so much sacrifice and so much blood to so many, like the end that awaits me, and I can assure you that none of those in the Life of crime that we met in that time, has returned or will ever return because all have died without disposing of a single peseta of what we -----(unintelligible)


I declare that this is the principal jail of the City of Guadalajara on the 26th day of the month of February of 1815, my gift to my confessor, Padre Misioero Fray L.C.D.H. who wrote it as I dictated it, with the signer receiving it as I give it under oath for whatever purpose considered convenient in this matter.

A Casual Introduction to A lost Ancient City of the West


It has been many years since I first imagined discovering one of the now termed “mythical” 7 cities of Cibola said to exist at one time situated around the fabled Lake Copalla. I still wonder even though we are told by the so called experts that it is just a myth, but is it? And if not, who built these cities? Perhaps these experts could get a better idea if they would just read the Aztec record instead of books written about them or books written by authors who wrote books about books about them… the regurgitation process is out of hand.

Over the years many evidences have come into play which today clearly tells me the cities most likely actually exist, or at least use to. If you have not followed my research you may find this as speculative, however the geologic evidence, archaeological, geographic evidence and historic narratives, ignored or recognized tell a different story weighing far greater than the mythical label placed upon the whole idea and the effort of silencing the past for seeming unknown reasons. Why does it matter?

Regardless, today I have decided to give the readers an update of my efforts to lend credence to the existence of this so called myth. To somewhat bring the reader up to speed it would be good to read or re-read the two part article:

 Finding the Legendary Lake Copala and theSeven Cities of Gold  

Of the 7 Cities in question, 3 are believed to have been possibly located, or so the evidence alludes. However today I wish to talk of one such location which came to my attention 4 maybe 5 years ago. One day, in plotting my chosen locations of the 7 cities, which I will withhold at this time, I found situated in a relatively flat valley, an unusual formation which did not make sense as to why it existed. A group of what geologist would call drumlins, and of course every one with any knowledge of drumlins knows that these are created by glaciations, from of course, the “last” ice age.


Now I know this sounds bold and speculative, but I say this with great confidence knowing the evidence often ignored, stands behind me… but… In order to have a “last ice age” you would have to have a first one… and I stand on this saying there never has been an ice “age.” However this is not to say that in approximately 2700 BC in the days of Peleg when “the earth divided,” that the events that occurred at this time caused a cataclysmic event instantly freezing the North and South in addition to hurling anything not nailed down, to be casted violently across the ground. If you find this hard to believe, then research the "frozen muck" in Alaska which was ground zero of a violent pole shift where in it is found the animals due to some violent action where shredded and ripped apart. Mammoths were found to have bluebells not only in their stomachs, but in their mouths, keep in mind, biologists claim Blue Bells have been “introduced” into North America, are they suggesting they did not exist in the time of the mammoth? One other location giving evidence ignored is the coast of South America specifically the Atacama Desert in Chili. This would have been ground zero at the equator as a result of centrifugal force, where in at this pole shift in 2700 BC a massive wave struck the coast and striping it of all vegetation and soil containing the nutrients needing for plant life. This wave would have been so powerful and high that it managed to breach the inland some 400 miles and as high as 12000 feet, sound ridiculous? Now read the academic views as to why this area has no vegetation, and if you have eyes to see, you will find it as humorous as I did. They have taken the results of this event, and turned it into the cause.. how ingenious…

End of rant, Back to the cities…


The needed immovable object

According to geologists drumlins are created as a result of glacial flow but in order for it to begin the process of building the drumlin, it must encounter an immovable object such as a natural upheaval cliff formation or large rock such as a ledge or the like. Although possible, I am having a difficult time in imagining a natural upheaval a mile and a half long having 5 peaks. Never would it be considered as a possibly being man made structures causing these 5 peaks serving as immovable objects, I mean… after all there wasn’t any people 14 thousand years ago at the end of the last ice age capable of building such structures right? I propose this catastrophic event resulting in these drumlins was in fact large volumes of water and not ice. In addition to these drumlins, behind them and all the way to the mountain wherein this flow came from is one of the largest alluvial fan boulder fields around. The boulders are found to be from football size to as large as a Volkswagen.

Drumlins RED, Alluvial Fan YELLOW

In the book of Isaiah we find,


41:18 I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.


Is this an event that occurred in the past or at some point in the future from the time it was written? Has it happened before? Has it happened many times? Where has it happened? And will it again happen?

Water source BLUE

I propose an event of the rivers opening in high places occurred at this location at either the events of the destruction at the time of the crucifixion or an event which I am certain occurred in about 900 AD, an event which I propose is responsible for the Colorado Plateau uplift and the draining and or dispersion of Lake Copala and Lake Bonneville. Due to narrative historic evidences and physical evidences, I would lean more towards the 900 AD event. This is not to say however that another unknown event could have occurred before or after 900 AD.

 With the many evidences gathered regarding this hypothesis, it strongly suggest that the immovable objects under the drumlins are likely that of stone structures of buildings by some previous unknown to many, culture. I am caused to believe the structures were either of the Roman Colonies, Welsh or other who came here and established themselves in 775 AD and to about 1050 AD. According to the text found on the Tucson Lead Crosses, in 900 AD was a massive earthquake. The city or cities could have also been as a result of those who here came about 100 BC as a result of the sacking of India under the thumb of Alexander the Great in 326 BC. There is another possible culture which the Aztec and Toltec derive who are no doubt a mixture of the previous mention, and who first arrived on this continent about 600 BC being of Jewish or Hebrew decent.


Pyramid Immovable Object

If this hypothesis has any merit and it is found through excavation to be true, no doubt the architecture and artifacts with show who was responsible. This of course would be subject to keeping it as far away from Smithsonian as possible. It is well known and documented as to the many mound cities that existed at this place and other places nearby, one of the most profound was in Parowan Utah where in was found among all the other mounds, a large two tier platform mound just like that of Cahokia, yet not as large. However I am fairly certain the immovable objects are not mounds, although it remains as a possibility.

But before we get all excited about this possible discovery, much work needs to be done first in order to determine if in fact any man made structures exist under the drumlins using ground sonar. At the impact side of the drumlins the alluvial fan of boulders are estimated at 100 to 150 feet deep down to the original valley floor. The peaks of the drumlins reach 100 to 150 feet above the alluvial fan of boulders, this means that from the top of the peaks to the original valley floor, would be approximately 200 feet minimum to the taller peak[s], 300 feet. Just for size comparison, The Sun Pyramid of Teotihuacan measure 216 feet high with a base of 760 feet square at the base which would fit nicely under any of the 3 largest drumlins.  

I propose that under these drumlins I highly likely a former lost city built by some unknown culture, and if I am wrong, I’m wrong, simple as that. This is my objective to prove otherwise and I am not concerned as it would be equally difficult for archaeologist to prove otherwise, their own theory of these drumlins being created by a non existent glacier.

Using an exact size overlay shown below is the city of Teotihuacan with a few added structures to show for size comparison.

As always, the lack of financial support is what stands in the way, but imagine what a magnificent find this would be, if in fact it proved to be one of the lost cities of Cibola, or that of some other unknown culture. There is so much more to tell and maybe I am being to overzealous in this.

If you know of any possible resource to investigate this further after further consideration, please contact me regarding… full disclosure of location but more importantly the evidences not included here will be presented… In my opinion the first and smartest action would be to buy the property which is privately owned, but only after verification of man made structures.  Perhaps next year I will be able to share another seeming remarkable discovery of the same nature made not long ago… The difference is, it has already been determined as being of Greek origin and a physical structure is present, however circumstances stands in the way.

The Lincoln Assassination

The Lincoln Assassination

and the events leading to it

The Lincoln Assassination is an unresolved mystery which has confounded many historians for years. The question of  the Secretary of War, Edwin Stanton, his associates and Secret Agents in a possible cover-up and conspiracy, still haunt many scholars to this day, whether they admit it or not. I have often in the past accused him of being the first President as to having committed treason against the Free Republic, after careful consideration, I would now tend to believe he never knew what was happening. 

In order to unravel this mystery, one needs to consider many things, not only significant events of the day directly or even seeming indirectly related, but one must push back even further in history and consider even the very foundation of the creation of this country in an effort to seek a motive. Keep in mind, History repeats itself; there is a pattern in all things.

Where does the assassination fit into the building of this Nation or the overthrow? What was happening at the time? Where in history has similar events taken place? I have found that by taking the basic information regarding each suspected related event, and those suspect of having been involved, even the regurgitated information found in the all knowing contents of WIKI, compiling it, and reading it, a plot and motive begins to unfold… Now am no genius, and certainly not a political genius or master of understanding the principles of deceit, misinformation and the like, or what I would call secret combinations found within the Biblical scriptures and others. All the while, keep in mind, with my open admittance, I could be wrong.

By compiling this basic information found for example in Wiki, knowing it is taken from one recent former writer and he having borrowed his from a recent writer before him, and so on… a preservation of motive in an attempt, knowingly or unknowingly, to cover the truth and ease the average readers mind in not asking certain questions in which the writer knows as he writes, the reader will question, but that writer of intentional lies, will insert a comment appearing to answer the readers questioning just as it occurs, and the reader will read on never thinking to ask again, after all his question was answered right?  In other words, in every conflict in which truth must be hidden, the victor in the conflict writes the history and that original writer in his attempts to tell only one side of the conflict, or to ease the inquiring mind, reveals himself, and the truth of the conflict he attempts to cover up. This practice is preserved in the regurgitation process whether they see it or not. It is most profound in the original source material; however, fortunately we have the accuracy of the wiki writer to thank for their melancholic nature in quoting. 

A lie, in one way or another, will always reveal itself when confronted with truth.

With this said, lets step back in time, to the foundation of the creation of this Nation.

As many of my readers know, I include sources often not considered by others simply because of their own prejudices and inability to consider ALL sources… although it is not necessary for me to include, because there is overwhelming evidence as to why the people came here to escape bondage and captivity, the following is a passage from Mormon scripture, specifically Nephi 1: 12-15

12 And I looked and beheld a man among the Gentiles, who was separated from the seed of my brethren by the many waters; and I beheld the Spirit of God, that it came down and wrought upon the man; and he went forth upon the many waters, even unto the seed of my brethren, who were in the promised land.

13 And it came to pass that I beheld the Spirit of God, that it wrought upon other Gentiles; and they went forth out of captivity, upon the many waters.

14 And it came to pass that I beheld many multitudes of the Gentiles upon the land of promise; and I beheld the wrath of God, that it was upon the seed of my brethren; and they were scattered before the Gentiles and were smitten.

15 And I beheld the Spirit of the Lord, that it was upon the Gentiles, and they did prosper an obtain the land for their inheritance; and I beheld that they were white, and exceedingly fair and beautiful, like unto my people before they were slain.

16 And it came to pass that I, Nephi, beheld that the Gentiles who had gone forth out of captivity did humble themselves before the Lord; and the power of the Lord was with them.

17 And I beheld that their mother Gentiles were gathered together upon the waters, and upon the land also, to battle against them.

18 And I beheld that the power of God was with them, and also that the wrath of God was upon all those that were gathered together against them to battle.

19 And I, Nephi, beheld that the Gentiles that had gone out of captivity were delivered by the power of God out of the hands of all other nations.


A simple knowledge or read of the Declaration of Independence would have suffice as well, it is common knowledge the people of America came here to escape bondage and captivity, not just that of the King but the elite or nobility of Britain in their imagined superior need to control. 

In 1776 the colonists of America could see the long arms of the nobility were not going to give up or let go, in fact it seemed to worsen and the people as a result issued their formal declaration of independence bringing on the revolutionary war. The people separating themselves from subjection to England was like England, (The Business) losing a large portion of their clientele. The beneficiaries of Britain were not about to let that go and their actions show this without doubt, it is certainly no secret.

Once the British were defeated those in power had to regroup and plan for the future as they did not consider intervention of the very God they proclaimed to obey. It would be another 36 years due to a lack of ideas of a cunning nature, to once again attempt by force to bring the people back into subjection to as they were historically accustomed to through 1500 years or so of practice. The Roman Empire still existed despite the views of many.

Once again in 1812, a remarkable event occurred wherein the Empire was again gathered to do battle against the people of the new free land and once again Great Britain was shown that God was still with the people. Today the event is known as “The Storm that saved Washington) rather than acknowledge he who has power over all storms… today it is downplayed in my humble opinion, to diminish the miracle it was in stopping the British once again. Hardly anything is said about the fact that the majority of the British fleet was wiped out. They do however mention that at the moment an incredible storm appeared, the British were engaged in burning the city of Washington, in which the fire was put out. What are the chances? With all the academic rhetoric fluff and buff that was written of the event all have failed to describe the true extraordinary nature of the event.

Nathan Rothschild, of the Bank of England, issued an ultimatum: “Either the application for the renewal of the charter is granted, or the United States will find itself involved in a most disastrous war.” Jackson and the American patriots did not believe the power of the international moneylenders could extend so far. “You are a den of thieves-vipers,” Jackson told them. “I intend to rout you out, and by the Eternal God, I will rout you out!” Nathan Rothschild issued orders: “Teach these impudent Americans a lesson. Bring them back to Colonial status.”

In nearly all wars, there is a third party instigator…

The British Government launched the War of 1812 against the United States. Rothschild's plan was to impoverish the United States through this war to such an extent that the legislators would have to seek financial aid... which, of course, would be forthcoming only in return for the renewal of the charter for the Bank of the United States. Thousands were killed, but what does that matter to Rothschild? He had achieved his objective; the U.S. Congress granted the renewal of the Charter in 1816.

50 years later the butt hurt Rothschild’s would kick up their heals again in an attempt to bring the colonist back into submission. During those 50 years many atrocities were committed by the new care takers of this land, crimes against the Native people, crimes against religious practice, deceit and deception by those in political power for personal gain, in short the new stewards of this blessed and yet cursed land had sufficiently fallen from serving the one true God. 

It is nearly unknown by the inhabitants of this land as to the ancient old curse or blessing pronounced upon this land, depending upon the use of agency of the people. A majority of the native people knew this from ancient times but it is best said by those who first came to this land and is recorded in one of the Mormon Books, in this presumed true account, Ether 2:

10 For behold, this is a land which is choice above all other lands; wherefore he that doth possess it shall serve God or shall be swept off; for it is the everlasting decree of God. And it is not until the fulness of iniquity among the children of the land, that they are swept off.

11 And this cometh unto you, O ye Gentiles, that ye may know the decrees of God—that ye may repent, and not continue in your iniquities until the fulness come, that ye may not bring down the fulness of the wrath of God upon you as the inhabitants of the land have hitherto done.

12 Behold, this is a choice land, and whatsoever nation shall possess it shall be free from bondage, and from captivity, and from all other nations under heaven, if they will but serve the God of the land, who is Jesus Christ, who hath been manifested by the things which we have written.



In 1843, just 19 years before the Civil war conflict, a very interesting prophecy was given to Stephen A. Douglas by the leader Joseph Smith of the Mormons who is said to be a Prophet of God by the Mormon people. What I find strange about the prophecy is that what I would say is the most important part of the prophecy is ignored by most every one including the Mormon scholars and authors, yet the anti Mormons are very quick and anxious in pointing out the prophecy is false because the claim ignored part never happened! But here is where they could receive an education if they would… The prophecy recorded in the Journal of William Clayton on May 18th 1843 is as follows: 

“Dined with Judge Stephen A. Douglas, who is presiding at court. After dinner Judge Douglas requested President Joseph to give him a history of the Missouri persecution, which he did in a very minute manner, for about three hours. He also gave a relation of his journey to Washington city, and his application in behalf of the Saints to Mr. Van Buren, the President of the United States, for redress and Mr. Van Buren's pusillanimous reply, "Gentlemen, your cause is just, but I can do nothing for you;" and the cold, unfeeling manner in which he was treated by most of the senators and representatives in relation to the subject, Clay saying, "You had better go to Oregon," and Calhoun shaking his head solemnly, saying, "It's a nice question—a critical question, but it will not do to agitate it."


The judge listened with the greatest attention and spoke warmly in depreciation of the conduct of Governor Boggs and the authorities of Missouri, who had taken part in the extermination, and said that any people that would do as the mobs of Missouri had done ought to be brought to judgment: they ought to be punished.

President Smith, in concluding his remarks, said that if the government, which received into its coffers the money of citizens for its public lands, while its officials are rolling in luxury at the expense of its public treasury, cannot protect such citizens in their lives and property, it is an old granny anyhow.

"And I prophesy in the name of the Lord God of Israel, unless the United States redress the wrongs committed upon the Saints in the state of Missouri and punish the crimes committed by her officers that in a few years the government will be utterly overthrown and wasted, and there will not be so much as a potsherd left, for their wickedness in permitting the murder of men, women and children, and the wholesale plunder and extermination of thousands of her citizens to go unpunished, thereby perpetrating a foul and corroding blot upon the fair fame of this great republic, the very thought of which would have caused the high-minded and patriotic framers of the Constitution of the United States to hide their faces with shame.

"Judge, you will aspire to the presidency of the United States; and if ever you turn your hand against me or the Latter-day Saints, you will feel the weight of the hand of Almighty upon you; and you will live to see and know that I have testified the truth to you; for the conversation of this day will stick to you through life.

He [Judge Douglas] appeared very friendly, and acknowledged the truth and propriety of President Smith's remarks.”


NEVER have I found where in any Mormon author has addressed this issue in their own defense, they only focus on Judge Douglas aspiring to the presidency… and clearly the answer as to why this is, they do not know… The very same reason the anti Mormons use it to discredit the Mormons, they do not know either… CLEARLY the most important part of this prophecy is UNLESS the United States redress the wrongs committed upon the Saints in the state of Missouri and punish the crimes committed by her officers that in a few years the government will be utterly overthrown and wasted 

The United States NEVER redressed the wrong done unto the saints! If this is a true prophecy, I do not have to explain how profoundly earth shattering this is to learn but… It DID happen, and our Government, the Free Republic WAS utterly overthrown and wasted!... and here is where the anti Mormons eat crow…

The events that lead up to the Civil war of 1862 are many but remember, the Elite of Great Britain are proud people and don’t let go of things so easy especially where in their delusion of superiority has been ignored by us “impudent” people…

Now as I have said I am no political genius, but I know the motives, the objective of Great Britain is to bring the people into subjection to the Crown or the elite, by bondage and captivity, but war has not proven as effective as it is clear in this case whether they admit it or not… These peoples God has been with them in the past… Britain or should I say the elite, or powers that be, resort to an ancient old practice know as, Secret Combinations.

Now in an effort NOT to rehash over the details already written in previous articles or chapter of the book this article will likely appear… I will restate that in order to bring these people BACK into submission, by Captivity and bondage, certain things had to be set up in that the people voluntarily submit.

There is an ancient old rule which is all but stricken from history where in, when ever the powers that be intend to bring some act against the free people and into submission, they will always in one way or another tell them what they are going to do first. It is often in such a way that the people almost never see it or take it serious if they did, and they are lulled into carnal security often by way of benefits… IF the people do not heed the warnings and take no action to prevent it, this is considered as waving your agency in the matter by “Implied Consent” and the powers that be interpret this as a voluntary act and therefore they are justified having not infringed upon your God given agency which CANNOT be violated, not even by the God who granted it.

Although many other details exists, I am not of the political mind nor am I a master of Secret Combinations, however I do understand that the powers that be had to infiltrate and place in positions of power in our Republic in order to bring about each step leading to the overthrow of the Free Republic and in bringing the people BACK into voluntary Bondage and Captivity, financial and spiritual slavery.


Lineup of most suspected conspirators of the Assassination

of President Lincoln


Author of the 14th Amendment

 John Bingham, Puppet, Author of the unholy document the 14th Amendment where in the people were told what the powers that be are going to do,  Lawyer, congressional politician, assistant Judge advocate in the Lincoln assassination trials, prosecutor in the trumped up impeachment trials of President Andrew Johnson, and friend of Salmon Chase, all very convenient.


Salmon Chase, friend of John Bingham, Puppet, Lawyer, politician, Chief Justice of the United States, Governor of Ohio, United States senate representing Ohio, Secretary of the Treasury of the United States, and being one of the “few” having served in all 3 branches of the Government? And he was such good friends with the creator of Chase National Bank, John Thompson, that John named his bank after Salmon Chase, but of course academics state that Salmon Chase had no connection to the bank…. Very convenient. Perhaps I will start a bank and name it after a friend…


Most suspect: Edwin Stanton, Puppet, Lawyer, politician, served as Secretary of War under President Lincoln, likely friend and associate of the Rothschild’s family, refused to accompany Lincoln to the theater the night of assassination, was personally responsible for the actions of the guard assigned to protect Lincoln and who was called away by Stanton at the time of the shooting, had many dealings with John Wilkes Booth, known for making statements such as “Well, all I have to say is, we’ve got to get rid of that baboon at the White House!,” Prime suspect in the missing pages of Booth’s journal, it was revealed that Booth had received a large amount of money from a New York based firm to which Stanton had connections, Stanton is primary suspect individual as the representative where in it is said that "A representative of the European Rothschilds called on President Lincoln and offered him money at 27% per cent interest, but was thrown out of his office."

Most Suspect: Rothschild power mongers, Puppet Masters

The Fed: The most gigantic trust

December 23, 1913, the U.S. Congress voted in the Federal Reserve Act, which took away from Congress the power to create money, and which handed over this power to the Federal Reserve Corporation. One of the rare Congressmen who had understood all the issue at stake in this Act,

Representative Charles A. Lindbergh Sr. (Rep-Minnesota), father of the famous aviator, said: “This Act establishes the most gigantic trust on earth. When the President (Wilson) signs this bill, the invisible government of the Monetary Power will be legalized... The worst legislative crime of the ages is perpetrated by this banking and currency bill.”

The education of the people

What allowed the bankers to finally obtain the complete monopoly of the control of credit in the United States? the ignorance among the population of the money question.

Lincoln's Secretary of Treasury, Salmon P. Chase, stated publicly, shortly after the passage of the National Banking Act, in 1863:

My agency in promoting the passage of the National Banking Act was the greatest financial mistake of my life. It has built up a monopoly which affects every interest in the country. It should be repealed, but before that can be accomplished, the people will be arrayed on one side, and the banks on the other, in a contest such as we have never seen before in this country.”

Do I owe Salmon an apology? I don’t think so…

Automobile manufacturer Henry Ford said:

If the people of the nation understood our banking and monetary system, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.”

PRIME MOTIVE: To control the fiat system. As a result of this objective The Rothschild family and the elite had to formulate a plan where in every 20 years they did not have to fight for the extension or implementation of a new charter, you see people, they need your permission! It was time to set up a system of law under the fa├žade of Government (The Fed) in which they essentially could give themselves permission with your voluntary blessings. 

Among many smaller tasks, it was most important to establish “Law” under the illusion of Constitutional authority, (14th Amendment) which in its design was to have the appearance of remedy to satisfy all. The 14th amendment designed to follow the 13th amendment, keep in mind it was already against the laws of God and immoral to enslave anyone anywhere worldwide. However the slave issue kept the attention of the American people giving the illusion that this was the prime issue in the Civil war but it was not. The short of it was corporate take over or an overthrow of our Government, the Free Republic, and in 1871 supplanted with this Corporation conveniently named the UNITED STATES, a corporate appellation. As I have said before and is spelled out in greater detail in previous a previous article or chapter. The 14th amendment was not about expounding upon the redundant 13th amendment in an effort to further define rights of all men, it was about defining the rights of black men establishing a class of citizenship in which all would eventually fall under… it was about creating slavery, financial bondage and captivity, and those who seceded from the Union, those 7 congressmen who walked out of session at the presentment of the 14th amendment knew exactly what was happening. 

Civil Rights which are not rights at all or Constitutionally Protected Rights? You decide, as you cannot have both…

I personally believe, however not being immune from error, John Bingham created the 14th amendment under the Act of collusion, the Rothschild coup and Salmon Chase assisted him in doing so as secretary of the Treasury of the United States which gave him insurmountable power and certain liberties dangerous to the American way. As Secretary of War, Edwin Stanton, with this same power and liberties was even more dangerous to the Republic. I believe Edwin Stanton was the direct go between, the director of affairs, the comptroller of this high treason. 

I believe that things escalated throughout the conflict of the Civil war but given Lincolns plate was constantly full and after all, he had his men on the job, right? Many of the steps of the creation of the overthrow evaded his attention. I’m not certain he ever knew but apparently Edwin Stanton was in the perfect position to keep Lincoln in the dark. Stanton’s documented actions leading to and after the assassination of Lincoln are above questionable, in fact I am surprised he was never implicated or questioned, but at the same time because of the power he held and level of control over all investigating parties he managed to stay out of the path of accusation.

John Wilkes Booth: The hired assassin. Many of the academics would love to blame the Confederacy for the actions of booth in fact they have, leading the general public through their games of deception and mis information to believe the Confederacy was behind it. It is true Booth was employed with the Confederate underground and managed to a small degree to keep himself from being assassinated. However Booth was highly suspect as to playing both sides, a double agent and was kept under surveillance at times by the Confederate underground and never allowed to advance into more secretive ranks despite his often requests to do so. 

The academic pens tell stories of Booths discontentment towards the abolitionists and it would seem evidence to support this is found in the Confederacy sources. It does become clearer as you read the wiki ditties that booth was a week minded individual and a simple target to indoctrinate, many of the things he spoke of or said to have spoke of, stinks of indoctrination. Booth was all about what he thought was going to pad his pocket best, he reminds me of the character from the 1999 movie The Mummy, played by Kevin J. O’Conner, Beni Gabor, especially at the moment the Mummy is coming at him and he resorts to all the different religious sayings and pendants in order to find one that might persuade the Mummy to back off. Beni throughout the movie was constantly looking for the winner in any given situation motivated by how it was going to benefit him. Booth was no different in this respect. One of Booths traits admired by the Confederacy was his ability to speak fluently as a true Grey Coat and at the snap of the finger speak as a fluent true Yankee. 

Kidnapping Plot? 

I do not believe there was ever a plot to kidnap Lincoln, and if there was, it was unknown to the Confederacy. The decision to kill Lincoln was pre determined by the powers that be, this web of deception was bound to come to someone’s attention and Lincoln would have been the first if he ever suspected anything. Lincoln would be the most powerful individual and most dangerous to all the effort put into this overthrow of power, he had to die along with others who could have implicated Stanton not to mention the Emperor of the Rothschild’s and their new clothes. The assassinations was to include others as well including Andrew Johnson, Johnson undoubtedly saw what was happening, at what point it hit him is unknown however, when his assassination was foiled, Stanton’s reaction and actions were in my mind very condemning. Further condemning Stanton was the Impeachment brought against Johnson and the circumstances leading up to it. 

True Purpose of the Tenure ACT 

The way I see it, the Tenure ACT of 1867 was implemented in order to keep key controlled people in office in order to keep control of the overthrow process, but had Johnson been assassinated as planned, I have my doubts the Tenure ACT would have ever been written, why was it expedient in 1867? Johnson who I believe knew more about Stanton that most think, was accused of violating this ACT, yet even a casual reading one can see this is not the case, but no matter, the attempt to remove Johnson failed. Regardless of what history has written I am certain Stanton and his puppet master were responsible for the creation of the Tenure ACT. If Johnson had been assassinated, the intended and carefully groomed or easily controlled Lafayette Sabine Foster would have been acting president of the United States. 

The Assassination from the Confederacy Perspective:

The source material used for the following let me say, I find as more plausible and credible than that of WIKI or what history has established, According to the testimony given in The Black Book, I do not need to explain as I have in other articles or previous chapters as to why I would place such firm stock in the Black Book. Being only 7 or so pages I am reproducing the contents  regarding Booth here. 

From the Black Book: Book Page 132-141 

The Odyssey of John Wilkes Booth

If John Wilkes Booth hadn't shot President Abe Lincoln at 10:15 p.m., Good Friday, April 14, 1865, in Ford's Theatre in Washington, D.C., today's encyclopedias may have accorded him a few brief lines or none at all.

Booth was born in 1838 in Maryland, the son of Junius Brutus Booth, an actor, who was born in London in 1796. John's brother, Edwin Thomas Booth, was a well-known Shakespearian actor who died in 1893. Some historians claim John Wilkes Booth "inherited" insanity from his father, Junius. 

One of America's top writers, Jim Bishop, did a remarkable job of researching Booth's activities leading up to the assassination in his book, 


He accurately portrayed Booth's treachery and fanaticism and the incompetence of his accomplices. But Bishop failed to report what the Confederates thought of one of their top spies, probably because the records weren't

Page 133

available to him. Bishop related the confusion following the shooting and how Booth made his escape from Washington via the Navy Yard Bridge and wrote, "There were stories which persisted for years it wasn't Booth who was killed."

The official U.S. Government version is that Col. E. J. Conger and 28 enlisted men cornered Booth in a barn near Bowling Green, Virginia, at 2 a.m., April 26, 1865. After the barn was set afire, Sgt. Boston Carbett shot Booth in the back of the head and he died, but not until a dramatic dialog took place. That wrote finis to the 27-year-old Booth. Or did it?

What about Confederate records? The Knights of the Golden Circle, the top Confederate underground organization headed by another "dead man," Col. Jesse Woodson James, had another version. 

Prior to the Civil War, J. Wilkes Booth, as he liked to sign his name, had attended a military school, but had been bounced because he was too impetuous. When the war broke, Booth volunteered for the Confederate Army, but an officer was impressed with his intelligence and ability to interchangeably "talk like a Yankee and a Southerner." It was decided Booth could do more than shoot a gun. 

After a short training course, Booth was soon moving back and forth through Union and Confederate lines with valuable military information for the South. At times, he used the name John Botha, the last name of a Russian-Jewish ancestor who settled in England. Posing as a drummer (salesman), he sold materiel of war to both sides. 

While he was a competent enough spy, Booth had some traits which bothered his superiors. He asked too many questions about Confederate plans, and he enjoyed gathering gossip about Rebel generals. At times, the Confederates had Booth under surveillance, believing he could be a double agent. Despite their suspicions, Booth continued to deliver damaging information on Union moves, and he did it in record time. 

In spite of his service, Booth was never able to advance

Page 134

above The Knights of the White Camellias, the third-ranked Confederate secret organization. He brought ill-conceived schemes to kill President Lincoln, Gen. U.S. Grant and other high-ranking Union officers, to his superiors. Put down as a "loner," Booth boasted of personal friends who would help him commit the acts. Confederates doubted his leadership, and some of his friends were checked out and denied membership in any of the Southern secret organizations. 

Following President Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863, J. Wilkes Booth went into a deep mental depression, punctuated at times by violent outbursts. He told his superiors, "Lincoln has freed the Negroes so the Negroes can make slaves of Southern white men and women! For this, he shall die!"

The final year of the Civil War when things were going badly for the South, Booth did less spying and more plotting on his own. He reported to his Confederate superiors, "A representative of the European Rothschilds called on President Lincoln and offered him money at 27% per cent interest, but was thrown out of his office." 

A few years later, while gathered in the Confederate Underground Capital in Nashville, Tenn., The Knights of the Golden Circle heard a report from one of Booth's superiors in which he alleged the Rothschilds incident might have been the turning point in the spy's frustration. "Gentlemen," he said, "I personally think that John Wilkes Booth went to work for the Rothschilds and assassinated Mr. Lincoln in their behalf." 

Most Southerners were shocked by the senseless assassination of President Lincoln. The war was over for all practical purposes, and their cause was lost. The Knights of the Golden Circle moved quickly to get Wilkes Booth to safety - he knew too much. Near a village in Maryland, the haggard assassin, his leg broken, was hidden in a wagon-load of chicken coops, the first leg of his journey to the Free State of Van Zandt, Texas. 

William S. (Wild Bill) Lincoln, a distant cousin of the President, reported in a sworn statement: "Our branch of  Page 135 

the Lincoln family was never satisfied with what really happened to Booth, and I spent fourteen years of my life running down the true story. Strangely enough, I learned it from Jesse W. James, head of the Confederate underground. I was present at Booth's real death.


Inserted Photo


"Jesse told me that Union troops and federal detectives traced Booth to an old barn on the Garrett farm in the hills near Bowling Green, Virginia. In their hysteria, they set the barn afire and then shot and killed a crippled Union veteran whose only crime was being drunk at 2 o'clock in the morning.

"Colonel James also told me the sad fact was that some mighty innocent people were made to suffer and even hung and imprisoned because of their association with Booth. He said that the Confederate underground had no love for Booth - he had shot the President after it was too late. However, the organization protected him and put the lazy bastard on a $3,600 a year pension as long as he behaved himself and caused them no trouble; but Booth couldn't stand fetters." Because of strict Confederate underground surveillance, Booth pulled up stakes and moved to Glen Rose, Texas, where he operated a distillery. He managed to get into difficulty with Federal authorities over a special U.S. permit and tax and sent his lawyer to the Federal District Court in Paris, Texas. Deserting his distillery, Booth moved north to Granbury, Hood County, Texas, where he built the city's first stone business building at the southwest corner of Courthouse Square, now used as a restaurant.

He also returned to the stage, a direct violation of his agreement with the underground. Texas Rangers and lawmen, mostly former Confederate soldiers, filed reports with The Knights of the Golden Circle telling about the strange behavior of John Wilkes Booth, alias James St. George. The actor-assassin was drinking heavily, bragging about being the man who shot Lincoln, and boasting about his knowledge of Confederate underground secrets. 

The Golden Circle held a meeting and sentiment was

Page 136 

strong for executing Booth, but Jesse W. James, who by this time was building an empire in the West, suggested, "I kind of agree with you about shutting his big mouth for good, but let's let him make a tour of theaters in the West. We'll send along two agents to ride herd on him."

Meanwhile, Wild Bill Lincoln, who was working as an acrobat, circus clown, lumberjack, cowhand and teamster, was hot on the trail of Booth or St. George. In the early 1890s he roomed for while with Charles Booth, who was a nephew of the man he sought. "Charlie told me" Lincoln recalled, "that he had visited his uncle in Texas and Booth had hired a lawyer to write a book about his secret life and how and why he shot President Lincoln. I eventually got hold of the book, and in it Booth tried to vindicate himself for the awful deed." 

One night in the 1890s, Wild Bill Lincoln appeared on the same stage with John Wilkes Booth in Colorado City (now Colorado Springs), Colorado. "I talked to him," Lincoln recalled, "but I didn't know he was my man. He was using the name of Edwin Booth, his brother." 

Then one night in 1902 or early 1903, Wild Bill was sitting in Colonel Jim McDaniels' (Jesse James) hotel room in Guthrie, Oklahoma, when a book was tossed his way. McDaniels lit a long cigar and said, "Believe it or not, Wild Bill, that book was written by one of your men in the White Camellias, old John Wilkes Booth, alias Edwin Booth, alias James St. George." 

"Can I take it and read it, Colonel?"

"That's why I gave it to you. Read it and then burn it, you hear? The Knights of the Golden Circle bought up most of his press run, but there's a lot of dynamite in the book. We're still preparing for the Second Civil War and Booth is busy revealing a lot of our secrets. He knows more than any of us ever thought." In a sworn statement at Zephyrhills, Florida, on October 1, 1950, William S. (Wild Bill) Lincoln said, "While trying for years on my own to run down the John Wilkes Booth mys-

 tery, I landed right in the middle of the Jesse Woodson James mystery without half trying." 

In the spring of 1903, Bill was working for the Colonel in Colorado when he received a telegram in Confederate code, urging him to "get to Guthrie, Oklahoma, as fast as you can." "Jim McDaniels" was waiting for him in the bar, and Wild Bill had a drink with him.

"Listen carefully, Wild Bill," McDaniel said, "because we're moving to Enid at dawn. Don't look now, but those seven fellows down at the end of the bar are Knights of the Golden Circle agents. The end is coming for that scoundrel, John Wilkes Booth. Knowing how you feel about him, I thought you'd want to be in on the kill."

Wild Bill gulped, "Are you serious, Colonel?" 

"Never more serious in my life, son. I've spared that rascal's life many times. The Golden Circle just had a meeting down in Texas, and we voted to execute Booth. He was in Texas, too, but an hour after the meeting he flies the coop. He either has a pipeline into our Inner Circle or he's just plain mystic - I don't know which. Three days ago, our agents located him in Anadarko, but then he headed north."

"So you think he's in Enid then?" Wild Bill asked.

"We know he's registered at the Grand Avenue Hotel in Enid tonight under the name of James St. George. I've got two agents up there, and he won't go any farther because I've sent word that I, as head of the Golden Circle, will deal with him." 

"Is he armed?" Wild Bill asked. 

"Who in hell cares if that bum is or not? I'll take care of him."

"How old a man is Booth?" 

The older man tugged at his beard thoughtfully. "Well, I'm 59, and I seem to recall Booth is six years older so that would put him at 65. The damn fool hasn't drawn a sober breath practically since the night he shot President Lincoln thirty-eight years ago. How old are you, Wild Bill?" 

"Just 30, sir."

 "Well, get some sleep. We want to leave early so we can make Enid at a decent hour tomorrow night." 

A half block from the Grand Avenue Hotel that night a young Indian boy was selling lemons from a small basket. The Colonel stopped and said to Wild Bill, "Have this kid make you about a quart of lemonade, pronto, while I duck into this drug store." 

Four Golden Circle agents sat in the lobby while the other three joined the two agents already surrounding the hotel - just in case Booth made a run for it. 

"Mr. St. George expects us," the Colonel told the desk clerk and he started up the steps, followed closely by Wild Bill with a jar of lemon juice.

The door was unlocked and the two men could see the shape of a man lying on the bed. The Colonel lighted the gas light and Booth twisted in his bed. Beside the bed were three empty whisky bottles.

"Just wanta drink. Jus' wanta..." the man muttered. Then he opened his eyes. Startled, he said, "Colonel, you've come to kill me!"

"Take it easy, Mr. St. George," Jesse said, moving a chair close to the bed and sitting down.

"You are Jesse James and the world should know!" Booth charged, suddenly stone sober.

"Impossible, Mr. St. George, because Jesse James was killed more than twenty years ago. Jesse James is legally dead." 

Booth sat up, alarmed. "Stop playing cat and mouse with me, damn you, Jesse James!" 

"I could call you John Wilkes Booth, Mr. St. George, but the whole world knows Booth is dead," Jesse said gently. 

"You know damn well that I am John Wilkes Booth!" Booth practically bellowed. Perspiration poured from the actor's face. 

For a moment Jesse stared at the shell of a man. 

"I need a drink!" Booth commanded.

Page 139 

"Being a hot night, Mr. Booth, we brought you something cool to drink. Now, Wild Bill, you talk to Mr. Booth while I fix up his drink." 

Jesse went over to the wash stand with the jar of lemonade. Hastily, he pulled two bottles from his pocket and poured pure arsenic into the jar. Then he stirred the mixture with a table fork. He poured the loaded lemonade into a glass. 

Approaching the bed, Jesse said, "Now, Mr. Booth, I think you've had enough alcohol for tonight. This lemonade will really fix you up. I personally guarantee it." 

Booth balked. "A goddamn ladies' drink. I won't do it!"

"Come on now, Mr. Booth. Try just a swallow or two." 

The actor swallowed half a glass and said, "Not a bad drink at that." He turned to Wild Bill and asked, "Do we know each other? Your face looks familiar.

" Wild Bill coughed. "Yes, Mr. Booth, some years back we were on the same stage in Colorado City." 

"How interesting. Did I give a good performance?" He drained his glass and Jesse filled it up again. 

"You were superb, Mr. Booth," Wild Bill assured him. 

"What was the name of the play, do you remember?" the actor asked. 

"It was called Our American Cousin,, I believe, sir." Booth gulped the last of the lemonade. He tore at his collar. "Open another window in here, damn it, I can't breathe." 

 Then he stood up and addressed Wild Bill. "What did you say your name was?"

"Lincoln, Mr. Booth. You shot a cousin of mine, Abraham Lincoln!" 

"Lincoln... Lincoln..." Booth gasped, went into almost a stage fall, but hit the floor with a thud. 

Jesse James bent over and felt his heart. "Deader than a mackerel," he said. "Wild Bill, stay here. I'm sending up the four agents in the lobby to go through Booth's luggage. I'll be back in a few minutes."

 While his agents searched Booth's suitcase and trunk, the Colonel went up to the desk clerk. He slid two $20 gold pieces under his hand. "Mr. St. George isn't feeling too well tonight. I'd suggest you look in on him in the morning. If he isn't feeling better, call a doctor. He requested that we take his trunk with us tonight because we're headed for his brother's place in Kansas City."

"Sure enough," said the clerk, pocketing the gold pieces. "If you ask me, old St. George is just plain drunk."

"You might have a point at that, son," Jesse said, going back up the stairs. 

The six men were amazed at the records Booth had kept through the years. After they had finished sorting it, Jesse said, "You know, men, I'm just glad Booth didn't put all this in that crazy book his lawyer wrote - he could have put a noose around all of our necks!" 

Colonel James then directed his men to plant just enough evidence around the room so that the U.S. Marshals could identify the dead man as John Wilkes Booth. Then they took the trunk and departed, nodding cordially to the desk clerk on the way out. 

The men camped a few miles out of Enid and while dinner cooked, Jesse, mused, "It's kind of funny but in 399 BC, Socrates' enemies forced him to drink a fatal dose of hemlock because he knew too much. And tonight, 2,302 years later, Booth's friends forced him to drink a fatal dose of arsenic because he talked too much." 

"Well, Colonel," Wild Bill said, stirring the fried potatoes, "if I live to be a hundred, I won't forget tonight!"

Late that afternoon from Guthrie, Jesse had an agent send a telegram to the U.S. Marshal's office telling them John Wilkes Booth was dead and where his body could be found. 

Three days later, Jesse, accompanied by Wild Bill and two agents, went back to Enid and Jesse slipped two $20 gold pieces under the hand of the desk clerk. 

The clerk said, "Whole bunch of lawmen were here yesterday morning up there in Mr. St. George's room, but

Page 141 

 his body is still there in the bed. It's starting to turn black-like and is tough as leather." 

"Don't worry, son," Jesse said, "we're relatives and we've come to claim his body."

Up in the room, Jesse muttered, "The Union War Department once offered $100,000 reward for Booth, dead or alive. Now we laid Booth right in the Yankee laps and they don't want him!"

Carting the body of Booth back to Guthrie, Jesse looked up a doctor friend and asked him for a diagnosis. "It would appear that this man swallowed so much poison, probably arsenic, that he is permanently preserved. He's like a damn Egyptian mummy!" 

 Through a friendly town marshal, Jesse learned that the federal men had checked out John Wilkes Booth's body and papers in Enid and reported some transient posing as Booth had committed suicide. The report listed the dead man's name as James St. George. 

 Wild Bill wrote years later, "Was the Booth case still too hot to touch in 1903? I'm sure Dr. Samuel Mudd along with others would have been vindicated, and it would have exposed the earlier ill-conceived, hysterical investigation, but the U.S. Marshals just turned their backs on the case. Maybe the U.S. government by 1903 had uncovered the real facts in the Booth case and was too ashamed to admit the big blunders made by the government in 1865."

 Under Jesse James' direction, the leathery, mummified body of John Wilkes Booth was put in a special coffin and several of his men took it on an exhibition tour all over the United States.

 Jesse James III reports the Booth body was owned by a Glencoe, Minnesota, jeweler named Jay Gould, a relative of the financier, who had it stored. "This was in 1955 and I believe Gould has passed away. What happened to the body? Who knows? Perhaps John Wilkes Booth, hated by both the North and the South, is destined to lie forever unburied and unwanted."
