Hello, everyone. Very interesting posts & history lessons! One thing that amazes me, is the backwardness of our military powers at the eve of the United States becoming a world power. I often wonder what Germany and Britan thought of the young upstarts..still using obsolete single shot black powder rifles. The navy monitor type warship has always interested me, there is a web site on these vessels..most of the ones used in the Spanish-American war were old civil war..or commisioned withen a few years after. There is a photo of a navy gun crew drilling with a muzzle loading gun in 98'.
