Imgur用戶Ifeelwhiteboywasted從他的祖父那裡繼承了一個舊碗櫥,這個美國內戰時代碗櫥已經相傳了好幾代,算是個古董了,而在他把碗櫥清乾淨之後,他突然注意到這個碗櫥有點不對勁。

Imgur user Ifeelwhiteboywasted was given an old cabinet from his grandfather that was handed down over generations. When he went in clean it up a bit, he noticed something strange.

 

乍看之下這個碗櫥似乎很正常。

At fist glance, everything seems normal.

但仔細一看就會發現這個碗櫥有點怪怪的。仔細看兩個抽屜之間的隔板,它跟上下的木板並沒有貼合在一起。

But, when looking at the drawers, it seems strange that the middle divider isn't connected on top or bottom.

 

他發現這點之後就把兩個抽屜抽了出來。

So, he pulled the drawers out.

這張圖應該就很明顯看得出來,中間的隔板絕對有暗藏玄機嘛!

Then he pulled on the middle divider.

所以他就把隔板抽了出來。

裡面果然有個夾層,而且竟然還有裝東西!

To his surprise, there was a secret compartment hiding behind the drawers.

 

他第一個拿出來的是這個神秘的金屬物體,後來上網查了之後,他發現這應該是1800年代中期的散彈槍上膛裝置。

The first item that he pulled out was this metal device. After doing a bit of research, it appears to be a shotgun reloading device from the mid 1800s.

 

還有一個裝著子彈的小包。

The next item found was a pouch of pellets, most likely lead, used as ammunition.

 

最後一樣東西是一本黑色封皮的書。

The final item was this black book.

 

打開之後的第一頁寫著「Carlsbad 1859」(卡爾斯巴德1859年),這是美國內戰爆發的前兩年,這幾件物品被擺在同一個夾層,難免讓人聯想到內戰。

Upon opening, the front page reads, Carlsbad 1859. That is two years before the Civil War. The combination of the three items leads to the belief that this secret stash is directly linked to the Civil War in some way.

 

而黑皮書的內容是聖經,保存如此良好的古老聖經應該可以賣到不少錢。

The book in fact is a bible. Many collectors would pay a pretty penny for a bible this old that is in such good condition.

 

因為這3件物品被藏在同個夾層真的太有意思了,theChive的編輯也忍不住去搜尋了一下這些物品可能的來歷。

All three items are shown here. While it may not seem like much, there's got to be an interesting story behind it. So, I did some research to see about why these items were stashed in a secret compartment.

 

他的推測是這些物品的擁有者應該是來自新墨西哥州的卡爾斯巴德,卡爾斯巴德的居民在內戰中兩邊都幫過,而這本聖經的主人當時可能也帶著它到處跑,當時的很多士兵也是這樣。

The fact that Carlsbad was written on the first page of the bible is a big clue. This likely means that the owner was from Carlsbad, NM as residents of Carlsbad fought for both sides in the Civil War.  The owner of the bible likely carried it with him during the war as many soldiers did.  

As for why the items were stashed, there could be several options. Maybe the owner kept these items from the war and wanted to make sure they were kept in safe keeping as gun control ramped up dramatically in the west after the Civil War. Maybe this was a secret stash for emergencies. Hell, this stash could have even been used for hunting. Regardless, it's very cool to see that this slice of history was passed down for many generations. These types of historic items are also worth a lot when shown to the right collectors. So, if anything, this guy could maybe get away with some cash at the very least.

If you've got any ideas as to what these items are from, or why they may have been hidden, let us know in the comments below!
 
後來這些物品的擁有者可能是因為不想讓這些物品被戰火攻擊,或是這些是緊急狀況下備用的,才把這些物品藏進夾層裡。
