U.S.S. Monitor funeral service

Soldiers of the Caisson Platoon, 3d U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard), carry the remains of an unknown sailor to his final resting place in Arlington National Cemetery, Va., Mar. 8. The remains of two unknown USS Monitor sailors were discovered in 2002, 150 years after the ship sank during the Civil War. The Monitor made history when the union ship fought the confederate CSS Virginia in the first battle between two ironclads on March 9, 1862. The sailors were buried in ANC with full military honors.
