Ironclads: The Story of the Merrimac & the Monitor

When the American Civil War broke out in 1861, it sparked an arms race between the Union and the Confederacy, some of the most dramatic episodes of which involved the development of heavily armed and armored ironclad warships. Two of the first and most famous of such vessels were the U.S.S. Monitor and C.S.S. Virginia, which engaged in a brutal hull-to-hull battle off the coast of Virginia in March 1862. This engagement, the Battle of Hampton Roads, became justly famous and formed the basis for much of what would follow in both sea and riverine warfare throughout the rest of the conflict.

Ironclads: The Story of the Merrimac & the Monitor is a clear, evocative and enlightening account of this famous naval duel by Adam Badeau, a noted American author, Union Army officer, and diplomat, who was most famous for his service on the staff of Ulysses S. Grant during the American Civil War. This edition includes all of the half-dozen black-and-white illustrations that appeared in the original 1887 publication, along with three additional full-color period lithographs. It also includes a brief biography and period photograph of the author.
