Content Description: 

In October 1863, the British government seized control of Laird's hulls 294 and 295, which were being built for the Confederate navy. These two double-turreted ironclad rams--North Carolina and Mississippi--would have helped the Confederacy break the blockade. Instead, they passed to the Royal Navy as HMS Scorpion and HMS Wivern. Laird's built one of the most famous Confederate ships--hull 290 or Enrica, otherwise known as the raider Alabama.
