An archaeologists in Tennessee beleives he has found the grave of Charles Dickinson, who was killed by Andrew Jackson during a duel in 1806.
“History sort of turned at that duel, and it should have gone the other way; Jackson should have been killed. Dickinson was a much better shot,” said local historian Paul Clements.
The location of Dickinson’s final resting place has been a mystery since the 1860s, when historians in Maryland claimed they discovered his coffin. But Allen followed historic documents, and after months of digging, probing and intuition found remains of Dickinson’s wooden coffin.
