The CSS Virginia - "In 1861, a sunken Union warship, USS Merrimack, was raised and converted to an ironclad by the Confederacy. Renamed the CSS Virginia, she carried 7 guns, was covered with thick armor plate, and cruised at barely five knots. On March 8, 1862, Virginia sank the wooden warships USS Cumberland and USS Congress off Newport News. The next day, Virginia fought the union ironclad Monitor to a draw in the naval battle of Hampton Roads. After the evacuation of Norfolk by the Confederacy, Virginia was run aground and burned to prevent her from being captured by Union forces."
