Re: Query: Did the Confederates waste money on ironclads?

The issue also entails what type of ironclad. On the western rivers, at least, the CSS Arkansas and CSS Tennessee were too large and too poorly designed to be competitive with the Union vessels. A number of smaller boats that had reasonable amounts of armor plating would have been a better strategy. Having said that, there is no way the Confederacy could have kept up with Union production.

Repy: Did the Confederates waste money on ironclads?

Given that so few of the Confederate ironclads accomplished anything of value (see the CSS Arkansas on the Mississippi and the CSS Tennessee, especially, which did nothing to prevent Farragut's victory in the Battle of Mobile Bay) and that much of the armor came from railroad iron, it seems logical that this scarce material could have been put to better use maintaining or building rails rather than uselessly submerging it.

Reconstruction150: TWO VISIONS OF ABOLITION AND EMANCIPATION

Dear All, 

Some of you will take interest in the following write-up on a recent roundtable at the annual OAH meeting on emancipation, abolition, and their relationships to the U.S. Civil War and Reconstruction.  Looks like it was a lively session!

Kind Regards,
