Photo: Mystery Surrounds Sunken Remains in Florida Spring



The underwater ruins of a 19th-century steamboat are sometimes clearly visible as a skeletal outline (inset) on the floor of Troy Springs in Florida.

Archaeologists say the remains could be what's left of the Madison, a floating general store that once chugged up and down the Suwannee River but was reportedly scuttled during the U.S. Civil War.
