Long-Lost Blockade-Runner Agnes E. Fry Found-- Part 3

Continued from June 10, 2016.

When the wreck was first found, divers went down but the water was actually black with tannins from trees upriver.  "Imagine sticking your face in a cup of black coffee and opening your eyes," said archaeologist Billy Ray Morris.

With this upcoming sonar scan which uses sector scan sonar, images will be 3-D.

Also, people are offering their services as word of the discovery gets out.  The great-great granddaughter of the Agnes E. Fry's chief engineer says she has a journal written by him describing the night the ship went aground.
