Civil War Lecture Series: "Where are we in the conservation of the Turret?"

Presented by Will Hoffman, Project Manager and Senior Conservator, USS Monitor Project. Here at the Monitor Center we often get asked "what's happening with the treatment of the turret"? To hear the answer to that question, this presentation is for you! The lecture will discuss the treatment of the turret to date and describe the current and projected plans for the long-term preservation of the giant artifact.
