Civil War battle between the Monitor and the Virginia was one of the most
significant battles in naval history. The construction of these two warships
was different from others of that time. How did the Monitor, with only
two cannons and 58 men stand up against the larger Virginia with her ten
cannons and 260 men!? What made her sink to the bottom of the sea after
surviving the hammering from the Virginia’s cannons? And WHY did the Confederate
troops sink their own battleship!? Who really won the battle, anyway? If
you’re interested in warships and battles, or are a Civil War buff, you
will want to read this book. (Jean B. Bellavance for Pennsylvania
