Shipwreck remains have intrigued me since the first time I watched the Goonies. In the aftermath of Hurricane Ike, the remains of a shipwreck have been recovered off the coast of Fort Morgan, Alabama.

Archaeologists say the wreck could be that of a two-masted Civil War schooner that ran aground in 1862 or another ship from some 70 years later. The wreck had already been partially uncovered when Hurricane Camille cleared away sand in 1969. Researchers at the time identified it as the Monticello, a battleship that partially burned when it crashed trying to get past the U.S. Navy and into Mobile Bay during the Civil War.
