    Click on the name on the gravestone to get this: http://www.teamfortress.com/pumpkinpatch/the_last_will_and_testament_of_Zepheniah_Mann/
    Clicking "Barnabas Hale" on the Will gets you this: http://www.teamfortress.com/pumpkinpatch/family_portrait/
    Here's the Will in text form:

    So:
    Zephaniah Mann was a businessman from (presumably) England, who was advised to go to America to expand his weapons company and buy vast gravel pits by his two sons. He also owned a tobacco plantation. He contracted many diseases and died.

    The tobacco plantation was given to his maidservant Elizabeth.
    Elizabeth looks like this picture of the Announcer (she is probably descended from her). Notice the cigarette.

    The weapons company (Mann & Sons Munitions Concern) was given to Barnabas Hale.
    Barnabas strikes a great resemblance to his (obvious) decendant Saxton Hale. This also explains the name of Mann Co.

    MOST IMPORTANTLY ALL HIS LAND WAS DIVIDED EVENLY BETWEEN HIS TWO SONS, BLUTARCH AND REDMOND.
    The two teams in TF2 have their names explained...
    Apparently. Because we shouldn't forget Reliable Excavation Demolition and Builders' League United.
    Also this is the reason we actually play this god-forsaken game, to fight over the land.

    The final part has sand all over it though.
    Zepheniah says he will leave the entirety of something to someone (possibly Spytech to round off all the fictional companies). EDIT: The guy on the right of the photograph is most likely the one Zephaniah is referencing, due to the fact both places are obscured with sand. A way to get us all excited. Thanks Valve.

    EDIT:On cp_gravelpit there is an ammo box that comes up with this message when you try to pick it up:

    "CMaterial:

    CMaterial:

    recacheVars: error loading vmt file for vgui/maps/menu_photos_koth_harvest"

    It seems to be somewhat planned. Could cp_gravelpit be the start of Zephaniah's journey through America? This journey might be the mapcycle:

    cp_gravelpit
    cp_dustbowl
    cp_granary
    cp_well
    ctf_2fort
    tc_hydro
    ctf_well
    cp_badlands
    pl_goldrush
    cp_fastlane
    ctf_turbine
    pl_badwater
    cp_steel
    cp_egypt_final
    cp_junction_final
    plr_pipeline
    pl_hoodoo_final
    koth_sawmill
    koth_nucleus
    koth_viaduct
    ctf_sawmill
    cp_yukon_final
    koth_harvest_final

    If we look at the diseases they might be related to the maps.

    In Gravelpit C, there is an ammo box under the ground:

    This is presumably his grave. While walking over and shooting down where the ammo pack is, you randomly lose and gain metal.

    For those of you who haven't been following the "backstory" since the Classless update; it all started with the King of Australia starts a mad war with hills, and this (supposedly) leads to grabbing land in the Americas

    This is what we have so far.

    A new theory has been going around. What if RED and BLU are fighting over Z.M's will? Just because we've seen it doesn't mean they have.

    Now..what if they each had a half of the will...
