illustration of the Union Ironclad Warship, "Monitor". The
illustration is captioned, "The Ericsson Steel-Clad Battery Monitor".

of the Monitor. Surrounding the portrait is a fascinating story on Mr.
Worden and the battle between the Monitor and the Merrimac. This

highly desirable piece. Being a front page, and containing a
picture of the Monitor, a portrait of the commander, and a story on the
battle makes it a highly collectible leaf. The leaf is in
excellent condition, and will make a spectacular display when framed.
