FILE - In this Monday Aug. 5, 2002 file photo, the turret of the Civil War ironclad USS Monitor is lifted out of the ocean off the coast of Hatteras, N.C. Diminishing federal dollars have darkened a lab containing the turret and other large pieces, closing to the public a window on the nation’s maritime history and delaying possibly by decades their public display. The museum has seen a steady decline in annual funding from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration amid budget cuts and shifting federal priorities. (AP Photo/Steve Helber, File)
