Dubbed the forefather of the modern Navy, this ironclad ship changed how wars are fought at sea. But on New Years Eve, 1862, it sank off the coast of North Carolina in a terrible storm. No one thought the Monitor could be raised, but after 140 years, parts of the ironclad have finally been brought to the surface. This book chronicles the Monitors revolutionary design, exciting battle, and intriguing excavation.Illustrated by Larry Day.
