Trivia

If you watch carefully during the opening credits, you will see a horse fall and the ride strike his head on the ground. That was not an effect but rather a real event where the rider suffered a head laceration and required transportation to a local hospital. There were multiple cameras used for that shot and they continued to roll for about 20 seconds to capture the explosion effects before medics were clear to assess and treat the rider. See more »

Goofs

The U.S. sloop Cumberland is shown being destroyed by gunfire. In the actual battle it was sunk by ramming. See more »

Quotes

Gideon Welles, Secretary of the Navy: [after viewing the 'Monitor' concept] Well, gentlemen? Yes or no?
Commdr. Smith: We have information from Gosport that the 'Merrimack' will be ready to come out of the drydock in less than five months. No one can start from scratch and build us an ironclad in that short a time except Ericsson. He's promised to deliver us one within ninety days. On that basis, I say yes.
Gideon Welles, Secretary of the Navy: Commodore?
Union Officer: I agree with Commodore Smith.
Cmdr. Davis: I say take the thing home and worship it! It resembles nothing on the earth, or in the seas or in the...

This a One of Kind Civil War movie
28 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This a One of Kind Civil War movie Firt let me say that Virginia Madsen never looked as Beautiful as she does in this movie.

But this is the only Civil War movie that I've seen that deals with the naval battles. I think that this movie is very well crafted, and the cinematographic is wonderful. My only complaint about this movie is the dialog. At times the dialog is down right silly. However the actors do a great job with their roles The battle scenes are very well done.

If you are a history buff.. you will absolutely love this movie. It has no boring parts. Its just good. I hope someday it will be released on DVD, because my VHS copy is starting to show signs of wear and tear
