Nor’easter Reveals Remains of Revolutionary War-Era Ship

The skeleton of a wooden ship believed to be a sloop from around the time of the American Revolution was exposed by the nor’easter this week on a beach in York, Maine.

The skeleton of the ship was first noticed in 1958, and every so once in a while since then a storm shifts sands enough to expose it again, according to the York Police Department.
