Treasure hunters Rick and Marty Lagina, the stars of History's "The Curse of Oak Island," learn of a new mystery that may even rival Oak Island's. Michigan native Kevin Dykstra is obsessed with a deathbed confession made by a lighthouse keeper in the 1890s about a national treasure dating back to the Civil War. The story goes that Union soldiers tracked down Confederate president Jefferson Davis in 1865 and confiscated his gold.
