WOW: Divers accidentally stumbled upon a 19th-century shipwreck

Divers accidentally stumbled upon a 19th-century shipwreck in the Gulf of Mexico. They were testing out new equipment when they found it. Experts suspect that the wreck is a sailing vessel, maybe a schooner or brig, measuring roughly 124 feet long. The evidence is still being processed--but the experts believe it most likely burned before sinking.
