View artifacts from ship sunk by Rebel mine

About 800 people visited the Mandarin Museum in Jacksonville, Fla., for the grand opening of an exhibit of rarely-seen artifacts. The steamship Maple Leaf was brought down on April 4, 1864, by a Confederate mine. Artifacts include a sailor's pipe, canteen, skillet, a rain hat and a shoe. The exhibit will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. every Saturday through the end of the year. • Article
