Storyboard Text

  • The Beginning of The Battle of The Ironclad
  • We will help block the exporting of goods from the Confederacy and Britain! 
  • Second...
  • Let's bring down the blockade everyone ! (Captain)
  • The CSS Virginia 
  • Yes Sir! (Sailors)
  • Next...
  • The Battle of Hampton Roads aka the ironclad started March 8-9, 1862. It started when the Union decided to make a blockade that didn't let the south  export goods to Great Britain which lowered their economy severely.
  • Fourth...
  • I will take the Merrimack down
  • Abandon Ship!
  • The Confederates wanted to stop that so they built an ironclad. Technically, they took a Union ship that was called the Merrimack and put iron on the ship itself. Then, named it the Virginia.
  • After That...
  • Need to hurry!
  • The USS Cumberland had been the CSS Virginia's first target they fired one cannon ball and rammed into the the ship 
  • The Last Event Was...
  • They killed me. :(
  • The Virginia had taken down the USS Cumberland and made The USS Congress sail to shallow waters. Later the USS Monitor was finally introduced to the Confederates.
  • Monitor (USA)
  • I will not let this ship fall
  • Merrimack (CCS)
  • The Merrimack and the Monitor started firing at each other and the cannon balls just kept bouncing off of each other and making dents. This happened mainly because they both had iron which protected everything on the other side. They both ended retreating, but actually the Union won because they were able to protect their blockade.
  • Monitor (USA)
  • Merrimack (CCS)
  • Fire!
  • Five days later, the CSS Virginia was abandoned and burned so that the Union wasn't able to use it.
  • P. S. the ship was completely empty :)
  • Merrimack (CCS)
