A monument's time capsule was found by crews dismantling the 103-year-old Confederate granite landmark in a St. Louis park. What was inside the time capsule is still secret.

Missouri Civil War Museum director Mark Trout told KTVI that workers jackhammering around the last pieces of the 38-foot-tall monument popped loose the waterlogged, sealed capsule, reported The Associated Press.

Trout says the find week was "like Indiana Jones." He said the capsule will be opened privately, with the contents being revealed at a fundraiser.

The monument had been the focus of an ownership dispute between the city and the museum before both sides on Monday announced an agreement that required the museum to remove it. The monument will be stored until a permanent site can be found.
