Civil War Ironclads

ISBN: 9780801887512

In Civil War Ironclads, the first comprehensive study of one of the most ambitious programs in the history of naval shipbuilding, William H. Roberts explores the enormous task of constructing the U.S. Navy's new fleet of ironclads. This process involved establishing a "project office" that was virtually independent of the existing administrative system, broadening the naval industrial base, granting shipbuilding contracts to inland firms -- all under the intense pressure of a wartime economy.

British Warship Losses in the Ironclad Era


Title : British Warship Losses in the Ironclad Era
Author : David J. Hepper
Publisher: Chatham Publishing
Total pages: 168 pages
ISBN:

A chronological listing of all British naval vessels lost through accident or enemy action from 1860 to the end of the First World War, with full descriptions of the circumstances. A sequel to David Hepper’s highly valuable British Warship Losses in the Age of Sail, which is now the standard reference on the subject, this volume carries the coverage forward from the first ironclad to the end of the First World War. All losses down to the smallest vessels are included, whether caused by accident, stress of weather or enemy action, and full details of the circumstances are given, based on courts of enquiry, senior officers’ reports and other primary source material. Many incidents in this volume have never previously been studied in any depth, including scores of sinkings during the First World War, so the book represents a real and substantial contribution to the subject. But it is more than a bald recitation of facts, with highly readable entries containing fascinating and little-known details. There is also a representative selection of photographs showing the variety of fates suffered by warships in this era. The organization is basically chronological, but there are full indexes by ship name, by commanding officer and by ship type, making thematic research that much easier. In summary, the book is an important new source of reference for the naval history of this period.


A History of Ironclads

One of history's greatest naval engagements, the Battle of Hampton Roads, occurred on March 8 and 9, 1862. On the first morning, the Confederate ironclad the CSS Virginia, formerly known as the Merrimack, sank two Union wooden warships, proving the power of the armored vessels over the traditional sailing ships. The next morning, the Virginia engaged the Union ironclad USS Monitor to a draw in a battle that significantly altered naval warfare. It was the first engagement between ironclads and ushered in a new era of warship construction and ordnance. The 25, 000 sailors, soldiers and civilians who witnessed the battle knew then what history would soon confirm: wars waged on the waters would never be the same. The seemingly invincible Monitor and Virginia were experimental ships, revolutionary combinations of new and old technology, and their clash on March 9, 1862, was the culmination of over 2, 000 years of naval experience. The construction and combat service of ironclads during the Civil War were the first in a cascade of events that influenced the outcome of the war and prompted the development of improved ironclads as well as the creation of new weapons systems, such as torpedoes and submarines, needed to counter modern armored warships.

Joseph Brown and His Civil War Ironclads

ISBN: 1476626804

 A Scottish immigrant to Illinois, Joseph Brown made his pre–Civil War fortune as a miller and steamboat captain who dabbled in riverboat design and the politics of small towns. When war erupted, he used his connections (including a friendship with Abraham Lincoln) to obtain contracts to build three ironclad gunboats for the U.S. War Department—the Chillicothe, Indianola and Tuscumbia. Often described as failures, these vessels were active in some of the most ferocious river fighting of the 1863 Vicksburg campaign. After the war, “Captain Joe” became a railroad executive and was elected mayor of St. Louis. This book covers his life and career, as well as the construction and operational histories of his controversial trio of warships.

ISBN: 1846038022

The Ironclad was a revolutionary weapon of war, the first modern, armoured, self-propelled warships. During the American Civil War the South used ironclads to protect their ports from the Northern blockade. Impressed with their superior resistance to fire and, the North developed its own rival fleet of ironclads. Eventually the two products of this modern arms race duelled at the battle of Hampton Roads in a clash that would change the face of naval warfare. Fully illustrated with cutting-edge digital artwork, rare photographs and first-person perspective gunsight views, this book allows the reader to discover the revolutionary and radically different designs of the two rival Ironclads – the Merrimac and USS Monitor – through an analysis of each ship's weaponry, ammunition and steerage.

Seth Ledyard Phelps was of the Old Navy and the New. As a midshipman and junior officer he served under sail off West Africa, in the War with Mexico, and in the Mediterranean and Caribbean. As a senior officer in the river squadrons of the Civil War he saw combat at its closest. Phelps, a native of Chardon, Ohio, was a prolific and observant correspondent. His private letters, to his wife, his father, and to political patrons and other naval officers, are among the most compelling and descriptive extant. The heart of Ironclad Captain are these letters, which Jay Slagle has set in context through the judicious use of published documents, memoirs, and scholarly histories of the navy. The result is a small history of the navy and its officer corps for the middle third of the nineteenth century.

At the start of the American Civil War, neither side had warships on the Mississippi River, which was a vital strategic artery. In what would prove the vital naval campaign of the war, both sides fought for control of the river. While the Confederates relied on field fortifications and small gunboats, the Union built a series of revolutionary river ironclads. First commissioned in January 1862, these ironclads spent the next two years battling for control of the Mississippi, fighting in a string of decisive engagements that altered the entire course of the war. This book explains how these vessels worked, how they were constructed, how they were manned and how they were fought.
