The hunt for the remains of 200 Revolutionary War soldiers

The grave concern is that development in and around the putrid canal, a Superfund site in the midst of a federal $500 million decade-long clean-up, could steamroll history that has already been buried too long.
“We want them to tread with caution,” urged Eymund Diegel, a member of Proteus Gowanus, another activist group that is now working on a separate study to pinpoint the site.
Activists hope to create parks along the 1.8-mile canal to commemorate areas where the war dead are discovered.
