CSS Georgia

The CSS Georgia went down in the Savannah GA harbor back in 1864. The giant ironclad was put to the torch as Sherman's army approached form the west and just before he seized the city. The Confederates didn't want the ship to fall into Union hands.

At the moment they are slowly pulling the large ship up from the harbor in order to widen the harbor to allow larger ships to come through.

Interestingly, the CSS Georgia is considered and enemy vessel and therefor the property of the U.S. Navy. Does that mean they've recognized Georgia as an enemy they were at war with and therefor is that tacit recognition of Georgia a state?

I think there's a lawyer somewhere who could take advantage of this somehow!
