Re: [WarOf1812] NEWS: British, US treasure hunters fight over War of 1812 loo...
- An earlier version of the story from a website posted on list a few
days ago referred to both the Fantome & Tilbury as brigs. There was no mention
of "thousands of gold coins" in that article. Frankly, given the poor state of
US finances by Aug. 1814, I doubt there was much gold in Washington for the
British to haul away.
