Recovery: The Army Corps of Engineers hope to locate the  photograph that purports to be of the CSS Georgia, seen in this picture taken by John Potter of the original

Archaeologists with the Army Corps of Engineers are searching for what may be the sole photograph of Civil War-era ironclad CSS Georgia as they salvage its remains from the Savannah River.

So far, the only person able to verify details about the photo is the man who found it at a yard sale in Georgia in the 1980s - John Potter.

Potter said he was looking through a collection of antiques at a home in Waycross when he stumbled upon a picture frame that caught his eye.
