Florida Wreck - Captiva and Sanibel Islands

Just a rumor, couldn't find anything of substance myself. I'd be interested to know if you come up with something...

I can't think of any offhand.

Just a half dozen Confederate blockade runners, and a Union ship. Some more modern stuff.

North Captiva has a pirate wreck rumor, but may be just modern lore.

Bernie Reller may know more.

several wrecks in the area --in later civil war era --the blockade runners had to carry hard cash (silver and gold coinage) to buy and sell war goods with --as confederate paper money was not accepted anymore ...also money came in in exchange for cotton as well... to fund CSA govt needs

the blockade runners --is a great book to read
