    I learned that the USS Monitor was sunk during a hurricane shortly after the battle at Hampton Roads, Virginia. At the Ocean One mall which used to be on the Atlantic City boardwalk, there was a map of famous (or infamous) ships that sank off the Atlantic and Pacific coasts of North America. Interesting write.

    Yes, The monitor was listed as lost at sea during the civil war. The Virginia was destroyed by the Confederates so that it wouldn't fall into enemy hands. I think I saw the monitor at the naval museum in Washington DC. But that's was a long time ago.

    A nice rhyme around a bit of history of which I was unaware (being Aussie, only the basics of the Civil War was studied). I enjoyed the rhyme :)
