Hampton Roads, Virginia 1862. The battle that changed naval warfare forever. For the fi rst time, the world witnessed the power of a new breed of warship…the Iron Clad. The USS Monitor and CSS Virginia fired on each other, trading salvos for over 5 hours, yet their iron hulls were virtually undamaged in the onslaught. From that moment forward all wooden warships were rendered obsolete. Built on the burned and sunken USS Merrimac, the Confederacy salvaged her hull and crafted a sloping iron clad superstructure that would repel cannon fire. The newly christened CSS Virginia was the world’s first steam powered iron clad warship. Now you can own the defi nitive replica of this revolutionary warship. Complete with authentic riveted hull plating, 14 brass cannon, tethered lifeboats, rotating propeller and movable rudder. She is ready to display on a custom stand. A masterful tribute to American ingenuity.
