As the Civil War came to an end in 1865, Confederate President Jefferson Davis fled Richmond, VA with the contents of the Confederate treasury - an estimated \$20 million worth of gold and silver by today's value. Six weeks later, Davis was captured, but the treasure had vanished. Rebel Gold is an all-new series that follows an experienced group treasure hunters as they join forces to retrace Jefferson Davis' trail and search for clues that could lead them to the legendary treasure. With new evidence, the group will go off the beaten path to dig deep into American history and local legend to find out what really happened to the missing Rebel Gold. Produced by ITV Studios America, Rebel Gold premieres Tuesday, Sept. 15 at 10pm ET/PT on the Discovery Channel. For 150 years since the Civil War, many have attempted to find the lost Confederate riches. But with more than 500 miles of train tracks, dirt roads and river ways to explore, one of America's most compelling mysteries remains unsolved. Rebel Gold brings an all-star team of treasure hunters, history experts and engineering specialists - each an expert in their field - who share one common obsession: making history by finding the vanished treasure of Rebel Gold. Together, they will combine efforts and go where no one has ventured before to unravel the mystery that could take them deeper into history than ever before. Will the team put their differences aside to make history and reach a common goal or will greed and rivalry pit ever man against each other?
