ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Authorities in Annapolis say burglars stole $68,000 worth of Confederate memorabilia from a man's home last week.

The Capital newspaper of Annapolis reported Sunday that the victim told officers he left home Tuesday and found his house had been burglarized when he returned Wednesday.

The war artifacts include $52,000 worth of Confederate certificates and $16,000 worth of other memorabilia such as tin-type photographs, belt buckles and buttons.
