Summary
In Secrets Underground, history buff Elizabeth MacLeod takes readers deep down, down, down below the earth's surface, and introduces them to a completely different world-sometimes terrifying, often baffing, and always fascinating. Discover: - the Civil War secrets carefully concealed in Organ Cave, West Virginia - the top-secret equipment that lies deep below Grand Central Terminal in New York City - the network of tunnels in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, that once hid victims of persecution-and illegal liquor transported by notorious Chicago gangsters - how the Aztec city Tenochtitl<U+00df>n, the largest and most powerful city of its time in what is now North America, nearly disappeared without a trace - the abandoned ships buried beneath San Francisco that reveal the city's history as a top destination for fortune seekers during the Gold Rush - the nuclear shelter the U.S. government kept hidden for decades underneath an exclusive resort in West Virginia called The Greenbrier. Guiding readers through these fascinating places, MacLeod reveals their long-kept secrets and deftly explains how these lost and hidden subterranean passages, spaces, and caves answer decades-old puzzles, help us understand our own past, and lead us to discover what life was really like in eras gone by
