The Carolina, also known as the Caroline, was an American Civil War merchant ship that tried to leave Galveston, Texas by breaking though a federal blockade. The ship was last carrying cotton and sank in 1864 in the Gulf of Mexico. On March 9, 2009, contractors looking for debris from Hurricane Ike reported the discovery of the shipwreck after using sonar.[1][2]
