Object 73: Virginia Deckplate and Monitor Hull Plating

We've heard about the naval legends that earned their name from this battle (Admiral Worden from episodes #55 and #56), but here we take an in-depth look at the battle itself. It was the first meeting of two ironclad ships and was the first step towards the metal alloy and steel ships of today. Join us as we go back to a time of technological innovation that changed the course of Navy history.
