Confederate Ram CSS Albemarle


Recommended Posts

May 18 2020

After the success of CSS Virginia at the Battle of Hampton Roads, the Confederacy decided to build a smaller ironclad on North Carolina's Roanoke river. The CSS Albemarle stunned the federal fleet before being targeted by the man who has been called, "the first Navy SEAL." The History Guy recalls the forgotten history of the Confederate ironclad ram CSS Albemarle.
