      19th-Century "Time Capsule" Warship Emerging Near D.C.
      National Geographic News, June 7, 2012

      A warship submerged for two centuries in a river near Washington, D.C.,
      could provide new insight into the relatively obscure War of 1812, say
      archaeologists who are preparing to excavate the wreck. Scientists have
      known about the unidentified wartime shipwreck, which lies in the
      Patuxent River about 20 miles (32 kilometers) from the nation's capital,
      since the early 1970s.
