Product Description

The Monitor was a special ironclad warship. At an important battle during the Civil War, the Monitor made history-and changed the way wards are fought at sea. But on New Year's Eve, 1862, the Monitor sank in a terrible storm. For over 140 years, the ship was stuck at the bottom of the ocean-until scientists brought part of it to the surface in 2002! Find out more about the amazing Monitor in this book.
This book is perfect for those who are reading alone with longer text, harder words, and more complex stories.

Publisher's Description

The U.S.S. Monitor was an entirely new type of warship when it launched in 1862. Dubbed "the forefather of the modern Navy," this ironclad ship changed how wars are fought at sea. But on New Year's Eve, 1862, it sank off the coast of North Carolina in a terrible storm. No one thought the Monitor could be raised, but after 140 years, parts of the ironclad have finally been brought to the surface. This book chronicles the Monitor's revolutionary design, exciting battle, and intriguing excavation.

Illustrated by Larry Day.
