Civil War steamer found in Fla. river

Divers have discovered the remains of a Civil War steamship in the bottom of the Hillsborough River in Tampa.

A research team from the Florida Aquarium used advanced sonar technology to find the wreck of the Scottish Chief in 15 feet of murky water Tuesday. The vessel hadn't been seen since Union troops burned and sank it in 1863.
