Revolutionary War find?

On 31 July and 1 August 1776, Loyalist forces under Lord Dunmore, the last royal governor of Virginia, burned a number of their own vessels near St. George's Island where the St. Mary's River joins the Potomac.

In March 2009 IMH hired Azulmar LLC to run a sidescan and mag survey in the area.  Azulmar got several sidescan and mag hits, and sent us an initial group of 13 potential sites.
