The Gold of the SS Central America
Robert (Bob) D. Evans, Historian and Curator of the SS Central America's gold recovery, will share images and stories about the process of recovering millions of dollars of gold coins and bars from 800 ft. depth in the Atlantic Ocean. When this tragedy happened in 1857, it caused a national banking panic.
