Three Confederate ironclads took on a couple of Union monitors.
|The Union ships|
|The Confederates, above and below.|
|The Union engaged the Confederates early on with their longer range weapons.|
|The two sides close in on each other.|
|By now the Rebel ships have been taking a beating.....|
|....their best option now was to try and ram the Union ships.|
|C.S.S Arkansas wheels round and races after the closest Union ship.....|
|... and rams the twin turreted ship.|
|One down as the Union ships sinks from the ramming it had just received.|
The ships are all from David's collection and the cool sea mat belongs to Geoff.
