At least 40 key artifacts have been removed safely from the ship completely unharmed, including a scale model of the ship, pictures of the Sullivan brothers, artifacts from the Sullivan family church in Waterloo, Iowa, historic flags, and the Sullivan family tree.

There are still many more areas and items to examine but we are grateful to know that these important artifacts are safe. Thank you to our crews and partners who continue to work every day to #SaveTheSullivans!
