BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — Archaeologists from the University of Vermont are searching for the remains of a War of 1812 hospital near Battery Park in Burlington.

The archaeologists are using a grant from the National Park Service’s American Battlefield Protection Program to try to learn more about the encampment where 5,000 soldiers were stationed. The war against Great Britain lasted from 1812 through 1815.

Over the last 50 years people digging in the area around Battery Park have unearthed bones believed to be from some of the soldiers. Archaeologist Kate Kenny tells the Burlington Free Press they’re trying to find the hospital so it can be used as a starting point to look for other buildings.
