A 130-year-old copper box that is believed to be a time capsule has been found by workers dismantling the pedestal of a statue of a confederate general in Virginia, USA. A few months ago, workers found another time capsule—it contained three water-logged books, a photograph in a soggy cloth envelope and a coin.
According to an 1887 newspaper article, a time capsule was hidden at the base of the statue of General Robert E Lee, which contained buttons and bullets, Confederate currency, maps and a rare picture of assassinated president Abraham Lincoln in his coffin. However, this time capsule still hasn’t been found.
