Still image from The Most Daring Mission of the Civil War

The age of the iron war ship began nearly a year into the Civil War, when on March 8, 1862, the Confederate ironclad Merrimack steamed into the James River and laid waste to the Union fleets. Despite a heroic effort there was nothing the Union could do to stop this iron monster until the Monitor joined the fight. This is the story of that battle, which ended the era of wooden warships. Please note this title may contain potentially offensive language and mature themes. Additionally, topics in this title pertain to the American Civil War and may contain references, phrases, images, or other notions of a sensitive nature.
