A multi-agency collaboration is searching the Caribbean waters for wrecks of ships that were bringing slaves to the New World more than 300 years ago, with at least two wrecks discovered and the possibility of another five in the waters near Buck Island Reef National Monument and the Christiansted National Historic Site in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
