Hi BW,

I saw that article, that is so cool I hope they find a treasure trove of CW artifacts! Blockade Runners were a exciting way to get supplies to the South. This area was a graveyard of ships and a area that most successful Blockade Runners got through!

Thanks,
MD

Who has proprietary interest to the vessel and the items found on it. Is it the state or the federal government or private salvagers?

Has the vessel been declared a national historic site or is their any legislation to confer that status automatically?

Speaking of wrecks the Sultana certainly was the saddest episode!
