John V. Quarstein, director of the Mariners' Museum's USS Monitor Center, noted that Ironclad is located on land that was once part of Camp Butler, where 10,000 Union soldiers were staged and would have seen the entire battle first-hand.
"Hampton Roads is like an amphitheater," he said. "They were tremendous witness to history." He also noted that whiskey played a consequential role in the battle. "On the day the Merrimac fought the Monitor, the men basically were given two boiled eggs and two jiggers of whiskey," he said. "That's how they started their day." Quarstein is an unabashed fan of Ironclad's "fabulous" brand, but he also likes the product. "I believe that they will have a fine future," he said.
