The turret of the Civil War ironclad USS Monitor is lifted out of the Atlantic Ocean and onto the work barge Wotan, off the coast of Hatteras N.C., Aug 5, 2002. The silt-packed turret was raised Monday afternoon from the Atlantic floor, nearly 140 years after the historic warship sank during a New Year's storm. (Photo: AP Pool/Steve Helber)
