The Nansemond Ghost Fleet is discovered
The Nansemond is a 19.8-mile-long tributary of the James River named for the Nansemond Native tribe which is a Federally recognized tribe in Virginia according to Wikipedia.
The river begins at Lake Meade in Suffolk and has a mystery associated with it. If you have heard of the Nansemond Ghost Fleet this is nothing paranormal and the mystery has been solved. Virginia Living says local historian, Kermit Hobbs, noticed ghost ships when he flew a drone over the site in low tide near the bridge on North Main Street in 2017.
The mystery is solved
Hobbs said he spotted the outlines of at least six boats and posted the drone videos on YouTube. He gave it the title “Nansemond River Ghost Fleet,” hoping someone would see the video who could give him more information. In October 2019 a group of archeologists from St. Augustine, Florida spent two weeks in the area and located at least six additional vessels.
It was determined that the ghost fleet was the remains of ships used between the Civil War and Word War I. Locals who fished in the area did not realize what was lying beneath the bumps and blocks of wood that appeared in the water.
