On August 1, 1979 state archaeologists from the Division of Archives and History began the first of thirty-six lockout dives to perform engineering and archaeological assessments on and around the USS MONITOR. The Union ironclad sank of the coast of Cape Hatteras on December 31, 1862 due to a storm. Twenty additional observational dives were conducted with authorities from other related fields such as marine architecture, historic preservation, and ocean engineering and salvage.
Started in 1935, the North Carolina Highway Historical Marker Program was based on a similar program in VA. After forty tears, cuts to the funding of the project could threaten the quality and effectiveness of the program.
