Atlantic’s “Graveyard” Claimed The Monitor

Record #:
The ironclad warship U.S.S. Monitor sank off the North Carolina coast in 1862 while being towed to Beaufort for an attack on Wilmington. In 1973, researchers located the Monitor shipwreck southeast of Cape Hatteras. Follow-up expeditions resulted in the designation of the Monitor shipwreck as the nation’s first national marine sanctuary.
