Ironclad Legacy: Battles of the USS Monitor
No matter how strongly constructed, the ironclad, Monitor, can not win the battle against the forces of time and nature. Until its ultimate demise, the best we can do is watch the wreck as it collapses more each year--like a loved one on her deathbed-- and remember the Monitor for what meaning it has brought into our lives: Politically, historically, and culturally.
