Sunken Treasure

A Revolutionary War gunboat that was part of a fleet commanded by Benedict Arnold before he turned traitor has been found sitting upright at the bottom of Lake Champlain, astonishingly well-preserved by the cold, deep water for the past 220 years. The 54-foot wooden vessel, whose name is not yet known, was either abandoned or scuttled by retreating American forces after a losing 1776 battle against the British. It was found largely intact, its mast still standing over 50 feet high and its large bow cannon still in place. No decision has been made yet on whether to raise the ship from its resting place in the lake between New York and Vermont.
