Archaeologist Says He Found Remains Of Charles Dickinson's Coffin.

A discovery in the middle of a west Nashville couple's front yard could mean the chapter to a local legend is closed.

Archaeologist Dan Allen believes he's solved the mystery surrounding the grave of Charles Dickinson, who was killed by Andrew Jackson during a duel in 1806.

The location of Dickinson's final resting place has been a mystery since the 1860s, when historians in Maryland claimed they discovered his coffin. But Allen followed historic documents, and after months of digging, probing and intuition found remains of Dickinson's wooden coffin.
