CSS Georgia artifacts
Archaeologists and conservators recovered and cataloged artifacts from the CSS Georgia ironclad. The recovery effort is just one phase of the Savannah Harbor Expansion Project, which officially kicked off Jan. 29, 2015.

Artifacts that have been identified include pieces of a sliding gun carriage, ceramic pottery, nautical tackle and a plethora of fasteners and smaller items. However, several artifacts have yet to be identified.

Archaeologists will be sharing photos with fellow researchers and community members to help determine their purpose and origin. This album will be updated as new artifacts are recovered.

For questions or to provide information on any of the photos in this album, email CESAS-CCO@usace.army.mil with “CSS Georgia” in the subject line. Please reference the photo number in the body of the email.
