The result of more than fifteen years of research, Ironclad Down is a treasure trove of detailed information about one of history's most famous vessels. Describing the fascinating people—Stephen Russell Mallory, John Mercer Brooke, John Luke Porter, et al.—who conceived, designed, and built one of the world's first ironclads as well as describing the ship itself, Carl Park offers both the most thoroughly detailed, in-depth analysis to date of the actual architecture of the Virginia and a fascinating, colorful chapter of Civil War history.
