The experts discuss [George] Washington's sacrifice and lost history.
GB has a talent for bringing history alive.
Beck is most hated by the left because he brings unaltered history to the public.
George Washington had his own personal gold mine.
George Washington had his own personal gold mine.”
Some tens of millions of years ago a gigantic meteor struck near or on what is now the DELMARVA peninsula. It cracked the Earth. The Fall Line is a big pressure ridge from that event.
Much of the surface was set on end so you have a ridge of layer or gold bearing soils and rocks exposed to the surface.
When it was discovered by Americans to contain gold, they dug goldmines. George Washington had a big chunk of the Fall Line run through his estates. So did Thomas Jefferson and others (and since there are other exposed areas like this, you have goldmines all over the place ~ not big ones but enough to be worth working).
These places aren't a secret.
Here in Fairfax we call the area "Gold Vein". Down Souf' it's called "Goldsboro"
Good to know that lost history.
