The Ironclads coloring pages - The Monitor vs. The Merrimac

On March 8th and 9th, 1862 two "armored" naval warships engaged in the Battle of Hampton Roads, often referred to as the Battle of Monitor and Merrimack. This was the first time in history that two ships of this construction had fought. Although the Merrimack sank several larger ships of wooden construction, neither ironclad could gain an advantage over the other, and the battle was a draw.

 Ironclads Coloring Page

The American Civil War was one of the earliest true industrial wars in human history. Railroads, steamships, mass-produced weapons, and various other military devices were employed extensively. The practices of total war, developed by Sherman in Georgia, and of trench warfare around Petersburg foreshadowed World War I in Europe. It remains the deadliest war in American history, resulting in the deaths of 620,000 soldiers and an undetermined number of civilian casualties. Ten percent of all Northern males 20-45 years of age died, as did 30 percent of all Southern white males aged 18-40.
