Steam Powered Iron Warship - Steam Culture

Posted by Ritchie Ware on Dec 27, 2016 11:00:00 AM


This episode of Steam Culture covers Iron Warships. Brent shares about the USS Cairo and how these Iron Steam Boats helped turn the tide of battle during the Civil War. All of this was thanks to the power of steam!

Under all of that armor, these were still regular steam boats. They were powered by several firetube boilers and even had an internal powerwheel. With the power of steam these sea fortresses were able to go in under heavy fire and come out the victor. Watch as Brent talks about the USS Cairo.
