USS Monitor by PhantomofTheRuhr USS Monitor by PhantomofTheRuhr
The USS Monitor as she looked while either on river patrols or at dock following her legendary clash with the CSS Virginia at Hampton Roads in 1862. Sloped armor has been added to the pilot house forward, and deck fittings have been installed such as railings, an awning over the turret roof, boat davits, and a 11lb field gun for repelling boarders (There is no evidence to suggest that it was ever used in this manner).

You're very right msinabottle. I'd say the Battle of Hampton Roads was a Union victory.

Forgive me this omission--it's a very nice rendition of her at a state of her brief career in which she's not often depicted. They also kept grenades inside the turret as a surprise for boarders.

Not that inconclusive. _Virginia_ neither destroyed the rest of the blockade fleet, nor opened the mouth of the Chesapeake to Confederate commerce, nor broke the blockadge. nor ever left the mouth of the James again. That's a draw?
