Ever wonder how USS Monitor's amazing main steam engine worked? Or why John Ericsson is considered an engineering genius?

Join us at The Mariners' Museum and Park for a special guest lecture by national award-winning model maker and engineer Richard "Rich" Carlstedt. The leading expert on Ericsson's engine, Carlstedt has spent years researching and studying this remarkable machine. In addition, he has created the most accurate model of the engine ever made and it actually works! He will operate the model after his talk and answer questions.
