We often get asked, “How much of the USS Monitor was recovered, and what is still left on the seafloor?” To answer these questions, this presentation will provide an overview of the major artifacts recovered from the wreck site and their orientation within the vessel. An overview of the remains still on the seafloor will be discussed, as well as some proposed ideas for final artifact display after conservation is completed at The Mariners’ Museum and Park.
