USS Monitor’s Builders

February 2, 2019 @ 10:30 AM - 3:30 PM EST

Presented by Lesley Haines, Assistant Conservator

Lecture begins at 10:30 AM & 2:30 PM

Maritime Connections lectures are free with Museum admission, but seating is limited.

This is a new lecture series presented by The Mariners’ Museum and Park staff. Go behind the scenes of the Museum and explore our collection while learning about the work the staff does.

The Battle of Hampton Roads and USS Monitor‘s service is only part of the story. Each piece of Monitor was crafted by skilled tradespeople, some of whom left their literal stamp on the ship. Come learn about some of the people who helped build and outfit the vessel, and how conservation is helping us rediscover their stories.
