On March 9, 1862, Hampton Roads, Virginia, was the scene of the first battle between ironclad warships. The USS Monitor was able to block the CSS Virginia from destroying the rest of the Union fleet in Hampton Roads. This engagement changed naval warfare forevermore, proving the power of iron over wood.RSVP Here
