  • The south created a new ship that was very powerful so the north did also. The two ships ended up battling for hours in what became known as The Battle of Hampton Roads
  • The south had no navy but then the southern engineers unveiled a new ship on March 8, 1862 that threatened the naval balance of power in the war. It was called a ironclad.
  • In February 1862 the north launched their ironclad called the USS Monitor. 
  • The battle was between the south's ironclad and the north's USS Monitor. The battle lasted five hours but finally both ships decided to withdraw and both choose to avoid a rematch.
  • The south's ironclad was taken over and became a sitting duck.
