Video shows a diver exploring the sunken remains of the barnacle laden, eroded Monitor.

Voice: The Monitor is a famous Civil War ship. It sank in a storm almost 150 years ago off the coast of North Carolina. For years, no one knew exactly where it was. Scientists located it on the ocean floor and brought up some pieces of it to study. These artifacts are now on display at a museum in Virginia.
