      One of the Confederacy's most romantic keepsakes has been
      recovered. Scientists excavating the CSS Hunley have found Lt.
      George Dixon's dented golden coin, a memento from his sweetheart,
      Queenie Bennett of Mobile. Given to him, tearfully, at the Mobile
      train station as he left for war in 1861, he carried it wherever
      the fates took him. To Shiloh, for example, where it saved him from
      a grievous injury in the left thigh.
