CSS Alabama

The Warren Lasch Conservation Center has been conserving artifacts recovered from the CSS Alabama (1863) shipwreck for the US Navy since 2001. These artifacts include two 32-Pounders, a bronze bell, a live artillery shell in its wooden box, ceramics and a number of associated objects found in the concretions. During conservation, human bones belonging to one of the crew member were identified.

7/2/14 Update: CSS Alabama projects were completed and returned to the Navy in June 2014.
