Photo of the Key Stone State
The Key Stone State was a large Civil War period sidewheeler that sank off Michigan's Thumb in 1861. All 33 onboard were lost.  There was much speculation about her cargo and why she was making such a dangerous late season trip.  Her location remained a mystery until discovered in 2013.
