Lecture: The Last Days of the USS Monitor

January 24 @ 7:00 pm

Christmas Day 1862 was a joyful day for the crew of the USS Monitor. That evening their thoughts turned serious as Capt. John Payne Bankhead told them of the order sending USS Monitor south. They all knew their ship was not seaworthy, and some feared passing Cape Hatteras. Monitor left Hampton Roads on December 29th. It encountered a fierce storm on the after-noon of December 30th. Heavy seas overwhelmed the ironclad with the full crew of 63 men on board. Historian John V. Quarstein, Director Emeritus, USS Monitor Center as he takes us through the final days of the USS Monitor.
