Texas Historical Commission Marine Archeologist, Amy Borgens, will discuss the Monterrey Shipwrecks. In 2012 during a NOAA investigation in the Gulf of Mexico, a shipwreck was discovered at 4,300 feet. This wreck, now called Monterrey Shipwreck A, contained six cannon and two collections of firearms. In 2013 two nearby shipwrecks were discovered. Evidence from the wrecks and recovered artifacts suggest these vessels are from the early 19th Century. Sponsored by the Sam Houston Memorial Museum.
