Civil War ship washed ashore by Hurricane Isaac

The ghostly remains of a ship sit on a beach in Alabama. Believed to be from the era of the Civil War, the remains washed ashore as Hurricane Isaac battered the coastline. Strong winds and rain helped unearth the ship, revealing a historical find to residents venturing out after the storm. SOUNDBITE: UNIDENTIFIED RESIDENT SAYING (English): "I am stoked that it is as well preserved as it is." SOUNDBITE: JENNY TUCKER, LOCAL RESIDENT SAYING (English): "It's just really incredible to see history laying here right here on Fort Morgan, on the beach." Opinion differs as to what the ship could have been used for. Some believe the boat was a blockade runner during the Civil War. Others say it could have used to smuggle alcohol ashore during era of the Prohibition.
