The Battle for Hampton Roads

No, this has nothing to do with BRAC.

The Navy Historical Center does not get enough play. One of the great things about the NHC is its collection of primary sources. Much as been written about the CSS Virginia and the USS Monitor and the actions that came before their engagement, but none are as good as the primary sources.

Being a Southerner, I will focus on the reports from my countrymen. If you ever wonder your connection to those that served before, read all, but focus on Admiral Buchanan. I have worked directly for my fair share of Flag Officers, and he reads like the best.
