The Original United States Warship Monitor

Excerpt from The Original United States Warship Monitor: Copies of Correspondence Between the Late Cornelius S. Bushnell Captain John Ericsson and Hon. Gideon Welles As long as the history of the United States shall endure, the thrilling story of the battle of March 9, 1862, between the Monitor and Mer rimac will retain its fascination. The people of this country and the nations of the world have not really known the full story and the real spirit or energy to which we are prima rily indebted for urging the construction of this initial and then invincible vessel whose first encounter marked an epoch in the development of arma ments a oat and ashore. And although thirty-seven years have passed since that memorable battle, and articles innumerable in books and maga zines have appeared from time to time in regard to the building of this first type of modern war vessel, it has remained until this day to compile and present herewith some information heretofore unpublished in full, which will Show that it was through the efforts of one man chie y (the late Cornelius S. Bushnell of New Haven) that the work was accomplished. The following pages will show that it was Mr. Bushnell's untiring energy and patriotic devotion which vigorously pushed the plans of Captain John Ericsson to final completion With not an hour to spare, and which Operated in a large degree to lift the gloom that hung over the country during one of the darkest days of our history as a nation.
