Conservator To Discuss USS Monitor At NC Museum

The senior conservator with the USS Monitor project at The Mariners' Museum in Newport News, Virginia, will talk about the ship's conservation at another museum not far from where the ship sank.

Conservator Eric Nordgren will speak about the conservation of
the famed Union ironclad at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Graveyard of
the Atlantic Museum in Hatteras. The USS Monitor sank Dec. 31,
1862, in stormy seas, sinking in 240 feet of water off Cape

Several artifacts from the Monitor will be displayed at the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum in the future. Nordgren will discuss the recovery and conservation of some of those items, including the anchor and engine room lantern.
