TERRIFIC CONFLICT BETWEEN MON
ITOR AND MERRIMAC.
The Laum-ti lug f tile K.ili t::li at Nor
folk Occurred Thirty Years After the
Mcrriraac Was I'inishetl in the same
Yarti Tli Great Encounter.
With thf lid of 1,200 pounds of t allow,
250 K)imds o: Albany urease, :;m pounds of
soft soap an. I the force of gravity the 1,140
tons of steel lid down t he ways ami floated
like a duck. All newly launched ships float
like ducks, and in so doing the hull of the
Raleigh simply fulfilled her destiny.
Thirty yea -s ajro to the month another
warship left his navy yard, steamed slow
ly out of t ic Elisabeth into Hampton
Roads and in twelve hours revolutionized
the science oi naval warfare. The Confed
erate Merrimac, with her roof of iron,
crossed the Roads, moved right op to the
United States sloop-of-war Cumberland,
with thirty gODS, crashed in her wooden
hull as if it had been pasteboard and sunk
her. Then ti rninj; attention to the frigate
Congress, with fifty guns, the Merrimac
drove her a ;round, disabled her, forced
her to surrei der and burned her.
For an hour the Congress poured broad
side after broadside upon the Merrimac,
but the solid shot bounded off sthe armor
as if they had been baseballs. Having de
stroyed two of the best ships in the United
States navy t he Merrimac drew back be
hind Sevrell'n point for the night. That
day's work taught the world a lesson. It
marked the end of the wooden warships.
It ushered in the era of ironclads. The
long, symmc rical steel hull of the Raleigh,
which slid down the ways into the Kliza
betb, was tin- legitimate successor in naval
science to the Merrimac.
The day f l lowing that on which she
gained her double victory the Merrimac
steamed out of the roads to complete her
work id' annihilation. The Minnesota was
there and several ot her wooden vessels of
the United States navy. These disposed
of. the cities f Washington and Baltimore
were at the i icrcy of the Merrimac, and if
she could demonstrate seagoing qualities
for brief periods Philadelphia and New
York might be destroyed. Confederate
fortunes touched one of the high Water
marks when the Cumberland went down
and the Congress was burned. Hut the
surprise was on the other side when the
Merrimac presented herself in the Roads
(or the secon 1 day's work. Out in front of
the fleet of wooden warships lay a craft as
queer and extraordinary as the Merrimac
in naval arc! ttecture. The papers of that
day said it looked like "a eheesebox on a
During the night the Monitor, the first
of Ericsson's creations, had arrived. It
had been a terrible voyage down the At
lantic coast for this strange craft. The
escape from shipwreck had been a narrow
fine. Hut the Monitor had come. And as
the Merrimac moved forward the Monitor
also advance 1. What a battle it was! In
after years every detail of it was analyzed
and studied as a science, and the navies of
the world wi re rebuilt from the keel up to
conform to the new conditions. It was ar
mor against armor. Forward and back
ward, on straight lines and then on curves,
they moved, each seeking the other's vul
nerable poin . Solid siiot struck the low
sloping sides of the Merrimac, raking her
from Mem t stem. Solid shot made great
dents in the arret of the Monitor and fell
off into the water. There they pounded
each other for hoars, and then, shaken and
damaged, t ley parted with mutual re
spect. The moral effect of the battle of the Mer
rimac and I he Monitor was great. The
north took breath. Washington and Bal
timore Were safe. Monitors were at least
a match lor Mcnimacs. "Build iron
clads" was t ie lesson of that day in Hamp
ton Roads, March. 1883, and "build iron
clads" wast ie order which went to every
navy yard ot all the nations of the world.
"A cheese mx on a raft" describes the
monitor type pretty well. Three of the
monitors lay beside the dock of the navy
yard on the Elisabeth the day the Raleigh
was launche I. At the time of the Chilian
excitement these monitors, which had
been resting peacefully at anchor for more
than twenty years, were hauled Up to the
.locks and the work of refitting them for
active servi was hastily undertaken.
Rather strai ge to tell, they were found to
be in good condition, and in a few days
they could h ive taken up position at the
mouths of 11 impton Roads or Chesapeake
bay or when ver wanted to repel attack.
"What did the Merrimac look like?"
A citizen of Norfolk answered the ques
tion. He was old enough to be a courier
to a Confederate general when the great
naval battle occurred. He saw the Merri
mac building. He saw her steam down
the Elisabeth and into Hampton Roads. He
saw the Cumberland go under, with her
flag flying, and he saw the Congress forced
to surrender And he saw the next day's
duel between the hope of the Confederacy
and the dream of Ericsson,
"What dii the Merrimac look like?"
The ex-cot rier glanced up and down the
river, and pointing to a very low, almost
Bat rooted building on the Norfolk shore,
"There, do you see that warehouse over
yonder? Well, the Merrimac looked just
like that building would if it was on the
water. She had a roof that sloped down
just about ; I that roof slopes. The shot
struck t hat oof and just liotinded off."
"The roof ajis made of railroad rails laid
close together, wasn't it?"
"Oh, no! That's a mistake."
"Seems ti me the northern papers said
so at the tine, to account for the solid shot
making no impression."
"Well, tint's all wrong. I saw the
armor when it was put on. It was in iron
sheets six in hes thick, and it was laid on
the roof anil bolted. That was the armor
from which he solid shot bounced off. It's
another mist ake to say the Monitor didn't
run from tin Merrimac. She did ran, for
I saw her. She got out into the shallow
water where t he Merrimac couldn't ram
her and then pounded away with her guns.
Hullo then she goes!"
The great steal hull had begun to move.
The truth ol Confederate history was for
gotten in thi pride of present patriotism.
The ex-couri -r became as enthusiastic as
the ten-year jld girl by his side, and joined
his "There .-he goes!" to forty thousand
others. Norfolk Cor. St. Louis Globe
