Wet lab conservator, Will Hoffman, replaces artifacts from the USS Monitor into containers at the Mariners Museum in Newport News, Va., Tuesday, Jan. 21, 2014.  The museum is facing federal funding shortfalls that threaten to delay the conservation of the USS Monitor artifacts. The museum has seen a steady decline in annual funding from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration amid budget cuts and shifting federal priorities. The turret is in the tank with the green tarp and the steam engine is in the large tank with the black tarp.  (AP Photo/Steve Helber)
