        U.S.S. Monitor, Iron-Clad Gunboats, and The Federal Navy | Ken Burns: The Civil War

        View a gallery of images of the Monitor and other iron-clad gunboats. The U.S.S. Monitor was part of a new class of naval warship, an iron-clad boat, developed during the Civil War. The Monitor fought the Confederate Army’s C.S.S. Virginia (Merrimack) in the first battle between two iron-clad boats. The battle was considered a draw between the North and South. While impressive in its initial battles, the Monitor was not fit for open sea and the poorly designed ship sank in 1862 off Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, with 16 men still aboard it.
