A Look Inside an Ironclad
The scene is Plymouth, NC in October, 1864, as we see the famous Confederate ironclad ship, CSS Albemarle sitting dockside. The ship is open to view inside as well; a rare opportunity to get a glimpse inside a unique craft.
The Albemarle is a classic Confederate Navy design, called a diamond hull vessel. It was 150 feet long and carried two 6.4-inch Brooke Rifles, each able to pivot and shoot out of three gunports.
