151207-N-ZZ999-040 ATLANTIC OCEAN (Dec. 7, 2015) -- George Schwarz, an underwater archaeologist with Naval History and Heritage Command (NHHC), and Charlie Buffum survey the potential wreck site of USS Revenge in the shallow waters off the coast of Watch Hill, R.I., Dec. 7, 2015. The site was first discovered by local divers Charlie Buffum, Craig Harger, and Mike Fournier in August 2005. The 2015 survey was a cooperative effort between NHHC and Buffum and Harger. While NHHC provided survey equipment and archaeological expertise, the discoverers graciously donated their time, knowledge of local sea conditions, and use of their vessel and fuel to complete the survey. Revenge, a schooner commanded by Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry, ran aground on Jan. 9, 1811 in heavy fog. Buffum and Craig Harger discovered the possible Revenge wreck in August 2005.
