CSS Neuse II Ironclad

CSS Neuse II Ironclad
June 23, 2009 02:11PM
OK I posted some pictures of an old relic Fort Macon for you artillery guys now I am posting some pictures of the CSS Neuse II Ironclad which is a full size replica / museum of the CSS Neuse which was built at Whitehall NC now Seven Springs NC and floated to Kinston NC for the fitting of the iron and guns, and later burned by the south to keep it out of federal hands. The CSS Neuse II was built by a local ship wright with the help of volunteer labor and is now open to the public a few days a week. These pictures are for you navy guys hope you enjoy.
Sorry for the power lines and pole in the pictures there was no way around them to give full view of ship.

Yes it is open a few days a week although construction is complete, they have the boiler in place and some other item, but they still have some work to do getting everything acquired and installed like cooking items, bedding, powder kegs, etc. It is very amazing sitting there at 158 feet long and 35 feet. The walk way to the inside is on the back side of the pictures that were posted.

Willoughby Smitty, purveyor of fine rusted iron, aluminum cans, and pull tabs since 1995!

"I visited a number of our field hospitals, and it was the most affecting sight I ever saw, to see so many of our poor fellows breathing out their noble lives. A young man to my left, as I passed through a ward in which most of the patients were regarded as mortally wounded, knowing that dissolution was near, was dictating a last message to his young wife; and another to my right was directing a comrade by his side to send some loving word to his mother; and near by another, whose countenance showed that life was fast ebbing away, looked intently on a picture of some dear one at home for a moment and then fell to weeping. Others were undergoing great mental as well as physical suffering, because they were conscious that they were going to die far away from homes and friends. But the groans and agonies of these brave men shall not have been in vain. Future generations will enjoy the blessings that their blood has helped to purchase. It would be base ingratitude on the part of those for whom they died, were they to make no effort to commemorate their glorious actions."

Bob I live in Kinston and have a place at Emerald Isle which is on 20 miles from Fort Macon so I go there quite often. I use to go by the Neuse II during my lunch hour to see the progress of the ship. When I was very young my dad use to take my brother and myself to watch while the crew worked at getting the CSS Neuse out of the river where it was burned and sank. They had a big tent set up with all the cannon balls and shells sitting there that they were getting off her while they worked.
