Battle of Hampton Roads

The Battle of Hampton Roads took place on 8-9 March 1862. It was the first meeting of ironclad warships and was the most important naval battle of the Civil War due to its influence on navies and their building of wooden ships. The battle ended in a draw, preventing the Confederacy from taking down the Union blockade at that location. Captain Franklin Buchanan was wounded during the first day of battle and Jones was next in command. Jones led the CSS Virginia on that historic day. The battle against the USS Monitor lasted about three hours without either ship inflicting much damage.
