The Devereaux Cove Project
and the
Penobscot Expedition of 1779


During the summer of 2000, the American Battlefield Protection Program awarded East Carolina University's Program in Maritime Studies a grant to conduct a Phase II archaeological survey of a potential Revolutionary War shipwreck.  The vessel is believed to be a transport associated with the Penobscot Expedition of 1779, and is located in the lower Penobscot River at Devereaux Cove, Stockton Springs, Maine.
