From Ironclad to Artifact : The Journey of the CSS Georgia – US Civil War Ironclad Warship

CSS Georgia

In 2017, archaeologists raised the last pieces of the unusual Civil War ironclad warship CSS Georgia, which was built with money raised by Georgia’s women, and sunk by its own crew to keep it out of enemy hands in December 1864. The forgotten was discovered by accident in 1968 when a dredge struck the wreck, adjacent to Old Fort Jackson. In this hour-long documentary, filmmaker Michael Jordan, who authored a masters thesis on the Georgia, documents the ship’s construction, deployment, and discovery, as well as fifty years of archaeological study and recovery. This is the official U.S.Army Corps of Engineers documentary on the Georgia, which was raised as part of the Savannah Harbor Expansion (deepening) Project.
