See an Ironclad today!

In class we discussed the meeting of the Virginia and the Monitor and the far reaching consequences of their one battle.  Today you can still see the artifacts of the Monitor thanks to the work of the Mariner Museum in Newport News, Virginia.  Check out the webcams to see the guns and the relics.  Be sure also to check out the blog with journals regarding the salvaging and the recent Arlington burials of the humans remains that were discovered.

I love the idea of a virtual field trip. What a fun way to make history come to life! Thanks for sharing.
