Army engineers to raise, preserve Confederate warship in multimillion dollar effort on the Savannah River

Confederate troops scuttled the ironclad CSS Georgia to prevent its capture by Gen. William T. Sherman when his Union troops took Savannah in December 1864. It's been on the river bottom ever since.

Maybe the Govt. should hire professionals to raise the ship. Anything the Govt. touches turns out to be a cluster fuck.

And twice as expensive!
