CSS Georgia Salvaged by Navy

From the Mystic Seaport.

The Navy is using a huge 17,000 pound guillotine to break up pieces of the CSS Georgia which otherwise would be too large and heavy to be brought to the surface of the Savannah River.

The wreckage artifacts recovered are the responsibility of the U.S. Naval History and Heritage Command (NHHC).

They will be curated at a lab located at Texas A&M.
