CSS Georgia being raised

In the US, the Confederate Steam Ship Georgia is being raised, in the Savannah River....

The CSS Georgia was an historic ironclad gunboat, one of the first iron warships, built during the US Civil War 150 years ago.

Being a member of this forum, I thought I'd post this for kicks. It's a 3D print model I just finished of the CSS Georgia.

Re: CSS Georgia being raised

There is a very well done exhibit of the USS Cairo, another ironclad, near Vicksburg.
