In Engines of Rebellion Saxton T. Bisbee surveys the history of Southern steam machinery across those ironclads laid down by the Confederate Navy Department during the Civil War. The book is comprehensive in describing the mechanical composition of 23 completed and 4 nearly-completed rebel warships (this out of about 50 armoured vessels that the Richmond government are known to have commissioned between 1861 and 1865). Bisbee hereby brings to bear his considerable experience in marine heritage and archaeology, being an alumni of East Carolina University’s maritime research programs, and a manager and nautical archaeologist at Northwest Seaport Maritime Heritage Center in Seattle.
