    A Nor'easter battered coastal New England last week, dragging so much sand out to sea that it revealed a Revolutionary War-era ship buried on one Maine beach.

    The ship, which was previously uncovered last month during Winter Storm Nemo, was uncovered again after a new storm hit Short Sands Beach in York on Friday and Saturday.

    Locals say the ship has been uncovered several times over the years in serious storms.

    And they never thought to save what remained? I'm calling bull$#@!. Until the remaining timbers are tested it's just a rotten hull.
    Theye have refused their Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

    Theye have erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

    Theye kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies

    Theye have combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution,

    For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

    For cutting off our Trade with parts of the world:

    For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

    For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

    Theye plundered and destroyed the lives of our people.

    Theye are at this time transporting Armies of Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of a civilized nation.

    I hope it was a British ship.
