Speakers Bureau:
The Other Ironclads

October 21 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

VIRTUAL LECTURE

Presented by Dan Wood, docent at The Mariners’ Museum

 
About the presentation:
Almost everyone knows about the
Monitor and Merrimac (more correctly, USS Monitor and CSS Virginia), but many people know little of the 100 or more other ironclad vessels which served on both sides in the American Civil War. This presentation explores the fascinating and sometimes bizarre story of these largely forgotten ironclads, along with “tinclads,” “timberclads,” and other improvised armored craft.
 


Viewers are welcome to send Dan comments or questions, which he will answer following the lecture.
