13 year old Tom Carrol takes a job at the Brooklyn Navy Yard to help support his family during the Civil War. Tom is assigned to be the assistant of Captain Ericsson, who is currently at work on the first ironclad ship for the Union--The Monitor. Many wonder if Ericsson's "folly" will even float, and confederate spies are willing to pay gold for any secrets Tom can share about the ship. Tom is caught between helping his family and helping his country in this first battle of the Ironclad ships.
