AUGUSTA – Kevin de l’Aigle knew there was treasure in a metal box sealed inside the cornerstone of the sexton lodge at Magnolia Cemetery, and he wasn’t disappointed. “I feel like Indiana Jones and the Lost Ark,” said de l’Aigle, who was on hand Friday at the Augusta Mu­seum of History to witness the opening of the box, which was extracted from its holding place July 28. The treasure wasn’t silver or gold, but what de l’Aigle expected – a trove of letters, newspapers and books.
