Ironclad Revolution: The History, Discovery And Recovery Of The Uss Monitor, Anna Gibson Holloway

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

On the afternoon of March 8, 1862, the Confederate ironclad ram Virginia, built upon the burned-out hulk of the steam screw frigate Merrimack, crawled slowly into Hampton Roads to challenge the Union blockade of the Confederate coastline. Before nightfall, the Virginia had wreaked havoc upon the Union blockading fleet: the USS Cumberland lay at the bottom of the Roads, her flags still defiantly flying while the surrendered USS Congress blazed ominously in the harbor until exploding spectacularly in the early morning hours of March 9.;The USS Monitor---a vessel of a radical new design and completely untried in battle---arrived too ...


Steadfast In Their Ways: New England Colonists, Indian Wars, And The Persistence Of Culture, 1675-1715, David Michael Corlett Jan 2011

Steadfast In Their Ways: New England Colonists, Indian Wars, And The Persistence Of Culture, 1675-1715, David Michael Corlett

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

The Indian wars of early New England were traumatic events. During King Philip's, King William's, and Queen Anne's Wars (1675 to 1715) dozens of towns sustained attacks, and English communities and their inhabitants were buffeted and challenged by the experience. The scholarship on colonial warfare and New England as a whole has focused on change and development that occurred as a result of these wars. War places great stress on individuals and societies, forcing them to act in new ways and often to reevaluate and abandon old habits. New Englanders and their communities did change dramatically as ...

In The Pale's Shadow: Indians And British Forts In Eighteenth-Century America, Daniel Patrick Ingram Jan 2008

In The Pale's Shadow: Indians And British Forts In Eighteenth-Century America, Daniel Patrick Ingram

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

British forts in the colonial American backcountry have long been subjects of American heroic myth. Forts were romanticized as harbingers of European civilization, and the Indians who visited them as awestruck, childlike, or scheming. Two centuries of historiography did little to challenge the image of Indians as noble but peripheral figures who were swept aside by the juggernaut of European expansion. In the last few decades, historians have attacked the persistent notion that Indians were supporting participants and sought to reposition them as full agents in the early American story. But in their search for Indian agency, historians have given ...
