    The Merrimac (Virginia) sat at the mouth of the James River for another month, preventing Union ships from entering the river and moving against the Confederate capital in Richmond. But after Union troops retook the Norfolk shipyard in May, the ironclad became a sitting iron duck. This depiction of the Monitor (foreground) and the Merrimac shows the Monitor’s low hull and rotating two-gun turret. The previous day, the Merrimac had sunk two wooden Union frigates and captured another, nearly ending the Union blockade of Norfolk, Virginia. Though this duel of ironclads left both ships damaged, the Monitor preserved the blockade.

    The Monitor took up position to fire on the stern of the boat. The Merrimack stoked up it’s engines to the danger point to get the power they needed to break free of the ground. The Merrimack attempted to ram the Monitor but the faster Monitor was able to maneuver away causing the Merrimack to skim the back of the boat.
