On March 9, 1862, the battle of the century took place at Hampton Roads. The USS Monitor, the world's first all-iron fighting ship, repulsed the Confederate ironclad Merrimack. In so doing, the Yankee vessel demolished forever the wooden walls of the fleets of oak and billowing canvas, and helped ensure a Northern victory in the Civil War.
