      Burglars steal Confederate artifacts worth $68K

      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 (http://bit.ly/os9f5K) 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.
