John Quarstein is director emeritus of the USS Monitor Center and author of “The Monitor Boys: The Crew of the Union’s First Ironclad.” He discussed the Monitor’s famous battle against the CSS Virginia - the first-ever clash of ironclads - at Hampton Roads, Virginia in March 1862. He also talked about the sinking of the Monitor in heavy seas off North Carolina later that year, and detailed recovery and conservation efforts of the ship since the 1970s. This talk was part of a day-long seminar co-hosted by Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia, and Appomattox Court House National Historical Park. close
