Monitor 1862
The USS Monitor was an iron-hulled steamship. Built during the American Civil War, she was the first ironclad warship commissioned by the Union Navy. (Wikipedia)

USS Monitor var ett amerikanskt krigsfartyg konstruerat av John Ericsson. USS Monitor var ett av historiens första bepansrade, ångdrivna krigsfartyg och användes av nordsidan under det amerikanska inbördeskriget.

Konceptet grundade sig på en idé som Ericsson hyst ända sedan han flyttat till England 1826. När han såg de mäktiga linjeskepp som gjorde att Storbritannien kunde härska över de sju haven började han fundera över hur Sverige, med sina blygsamma resurser, skulle kunna värja sig mot sådana jättar. Hans lösning var en flotta av små maskindrivna, bepansrade fartyg med låga fribord och ett centralt placerat vridbart kanontorn. (Wikipedia)

Slaget vid Hampton Roads var ett sjöslag under amerikanska inbördeskriget den 8–9 mars 1862 som stod i Hampton Roads, Virginia.

The USS Monitor was an iron-hulled steamship. Built during the American Civil War, she was the first ironclad warship commissioned by the Union Navy.[a] Monitor is most famous for her central role in the Battle of Hampton Roads on 9 March 1862, where, under the command of Lieutenant John Worden, she fought the casemate ironclad CSS Virginia (built on the hull of the former steam frigate USS Merrimack) to a standstill. The unique design of the ship, distinguished by its revolving turret which was designed by American inventor Theodore Timby, was quickly duplicated and established the Monitor type of warship.

The remainder of the ship was designed by the Swedish-born engineer and inventor John Ericsson and hurriedly built in Brooklyn in only 101 days. Monitor presented a new concept in ship design and employed a variety of new inventions and innovations in ship building that caught the attention of the world. (Wikipedia)
