Oh Give Us a Navy of Iron --During the Civil War, Captain John Ericsson rendered wooden naval vessels obsolete with his revolutionary vessel the U.S.S. Monitor. In 1862 D. Brainerd Williamson & James Porter honored Ericsson's contribution with a prophetic ballad: "O give us a Navy of Iron, And to man it our Yankee Lads; And we'll conquer the world's broad oceans, With our Navy of Iron clads."
