Artist's Description

I photographed this painting at the Baltimore Museum of Art in Baltimore, Maryland — it’s a fine example of American art of the Nineteenth Century. The battle was fought on 9 March 1862 at Hampton Roads, Virginia — the first between two ironclad, steam-driven vessels. The CSS Virginia (ex-USS Merrimac) sank or ran aground three U.S. Navy ships the day before and returned on the morning of 9 March 1862 to finish the decimation of the Union fleet — only to find the Monitor in the way. Taken with my Canon EOS7d and a 50 mm prime lens. Hope you enjoy.
