Note the part about her belonging to the Navy as a captured enemy warship. This will bear watching.

The part about it being a captured enemy vessel, though slightly controversial, depending on geographic location ;), is correct, as it was an enemy vessel at the time it went down and the victors write the history. It will be interesting to follow this and see who gets the artifacts. To me, it should go to either the naval museum mentioned in Columbus, or to a local museum in Savannah, since it is a part of the local history of the area.
