Hi ATS,
I grew up with posters of ironclads on my bedroom wall.
This ship which bares a name synonymous with peaches has been on the bottom for one hundred fifty years.
The army corp is involved and so is a lot of money.
Savannah is a one of a kind city on the lower east coast of America.
Do you members think it is proper to move this ole War Veteran from Davy Jones Locker.
For Corporate greed??
thanks ats ljb

The article says it was scuttled by the crew without ever firing a shot.
Why not bring it up from the depths to restore and display?
If people had died on it, then there is issues.....

Someone who is more a historian on the Civil War could answer your question better
though.

Plus improving trade is a bonus for removing the ironclad.....

It's better that it be rescued than destroyed, and would make a heck of a display for Civil War and Naval enthusiasts. You Americans are a lot better at celebrating your past than we here in the Great White North. GO for it! S&F for your contribution.

On the serious side. Your Canadian History in it's expansive TERRITORIES deserves better from the world. The metro Toronto and Montreal need serious attention. especially in the UNDERGROUND.

CSS Georgia

Yeah, it was scuttled, so there were no casualties. Bring it up, it would be cool. Why shouldnt they move something like this to expand a port?

Wouldn't it be nice to see the issue on a ballot some where?
They have known where it is all this time.
Why spend the Tax money now when America has not a pot or a _
Why not let the shipping Coporations PAY??
Like Exxon etc. The port is not used much at all for US military purposes.

Civil War shipwreck in the way of Ga. port project


I grew up in Savannah... there's been efforts to raise that old ironclad off & on since the late 1960s. It's not in very good condition as it has been repeated struck by ships overhead and by dredging before it was identified.

The best idea I ever heard was to salvage the larger sections, preserve and display them at nearby Old Fort Jackson. But the state sold the old fort to a private owner and that sunk that effort.

I favor raising and preserving what can be safely raised and preserved... but in the long term, the wreck is too much a wreck to try much more than that.

Hi red.
Savannah is quite the place. One of a kind.
I think the heavy lifting should be done by the Corporatons that will benifit.
And of course the republic should pick up the preservation and display costs.
I'd love a visit to see the CSS Gerogia!
Leave the Army Corp to clean up Iraq.

Sorry, forgot to S+F ya the first time around.

I enjoy reading about history, and a chance to preserve and restore it.
Save it before something like this happens.....

en.wikipedia.org...

When I was younger I remember going across this bridge during the day and seeing the sunlight
shine through the bullet holes, but now it's just another bridge.....
I hope they can recover whats left successfully.

EDIT: can't agree with you more about letting the companies that use the harbor pay for it.

Hi yah,
Nice link. I have been there
It's all about history for me. Pre-history better yet.
Beware around the Moth Man's bridges! lol

PS sure just think if you donate to the rescue of the ship, you get a big plaque
with your company logo at the on shore museum site etc.
