The Orlando Time Capsule

While moving a "Johnny Reb" Statue in the city of Orlando a time capsule from 1911 was discovered. The time capsule was laid by the United Daughters of the Confederacy. If you haven't had a chance to see this news conference it is totally worth your time to see. Despite being against the wishes of the United Daughters of the Confederacy (who are actually fighting the city in court over opening it), the city held a news conference while they opened it for the first time. Various items such as money, a flag, and a newspaper were found. Although nothing earth shattering it was fun to watch this box opened and explored for the first time.
