Drought reveals sunken Confederate ship





Henry McCabe said it's been more than 30 years since the wreckage of the Acadia, a Confederate side-wheeler, has been visible in the Yazoo River.

Now - with the river's water level so low - this piece of Civil War naval history has once again come into view.

"It was about two and half or three weeks ago when I saw it for the first time. I saw that axle sticking up in the river. Then I started watching the river," said McCabe, a lifelong Civil War buff.
