Shipwreck hunter David Trotter & his team of divers headed out into Lake Huron in July of 2013 several times & discovered a 1861 Civil War era ship, the Keystone State.
The ship was rumored to have carried Civil War weapons & gold but after several dives the condition of the ship made searching for them impossible.
The historic find is one of many ships that Trotter has discovered since the mid-1970's.
He believes in leaving the ships as they are on the bottom & is not into recovering or taking items, he's in it for the history, the stories behind the ships, the sailors lost & to educate others about Michigan's Great Lakes.
