Unearth the history behind northern Ohio's best treasure tales, from sunken ships to misplaced spoils of war. Encounter a cast of characters as rich as any secret hoard, such as the notorious gangster John Dillinger, who left a trail of robbed banks, dead bodies and buried loot across the northwest stretch of the state. Read about the disaster that befell the "G.P. Griffith," the tragic massacre of a family for money and the Ohio counterfeiters who plagued the nation. But tread cautiously in your treasure hunt--Mad Anthony Wayne's gold is said to be jealously guarded by a dark, ghostly figure.
