That Lot in Gowanus?
This one is still up for debate, but a small, fervent group of historians is still on the lookout for a mass grave of soldiers (many of them from the Maryland 400) that has never been found, and theories have been floated recently
that it may be located under a nondescript lot on 3rd and 8th in Gowanus. If further proof is turned up (currently, this is based on careful reading of old, hand-drawn maps), supporters are hoping to turn the site into some sort of public space, but for now, as with most things, the land is slated for an expensive development.
