USS Monitor gun turret

The tank holding the USS Monitor's revolving gun turret was drained. The tank, in the Batten Conservation Laboratory Complex at the Mariner's Museum and Park in Newport News, was last drained three years ago. Conservators will assess the condition of the turret which was discovered off the Outer Banks in N.C. The gun turret is upside down in the tank as it was when they found it.
