In December 2014, a copper time capsule from 1795, buried by Paul Revere and Sam Adams, was unearthed at the Massachusetts State House in Boston. The contents included a pine tree shilling coin dating back to 1652, a copper medal showing George Washington, dozens of coins, several newspapers, and a silver plate thought to be engraved by Paul Revere. The story is just starting to unfold as historians and conservators save these items - and epic stories of the American founders for a new generation.
