If they weren’t completely removed after the war, I think the four steamers sunk to block the mouth of the Yazoo River during the American Civil War would be an interesting project. But others might be more interested in the French destroyer L’Adroit, which was sunk in shallow water near Dunkirk on the coast of France, as she may have carried a fortune in gold.

Among the numerous vessels lost on April 23 were brigs, ships and barks. They were French, Norwegian, British, American, Australian, German, and Russian. One, yet to be discovered, German submarine, carried a cargo of gold bars.
