Museum conservators inspect one of the Monitor's Dahlgren guns

Civil War Lecture: Photo-modeling USS Monitor Artifacts

Presented by Hannah Fleming, Coordinator, USS Monitor Center

Ever wonder what the turret looks like in 3D? Want to see details of buttons, bottles, and silverware without a magnifying glass? Photo-modeling can help answer important questions while offering researchers and guests a new way to experience artifacts that would not be on display otherwise — because the artifact is undergoing conservation or because it is too fragile. Learn what data can be gathered and how Monitor artifacts can be shared digitally all over the world.
