October 28 @ 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM

Torpedoes: Infernal Machines

Presented by John V. Quarstein, Director Emeritus, USS Monitor Center

Without a navy when the Civil War erupted, the Confederacy sought new technologies to defend their ports and rivers. Consequently, they developed a system of torpedoes, which aided their defense, sinking several Union ironclads, gunboats, and transports.
