    Who - Generals/Leaders, Troops, Spies/Reconnaissance, Civilians,
    Commanded by Commodore Franklin Bunchanan and supported by several other Confederate vesselsSupported by several other Confederate vessels
    ...
    The Northern-built Merrimack, a conventional steam frigate, had been salvaged by the Confederates from the Norfolk navy yard and rechristened the Virginia.
    The Virginia opened fire on the Minnesota, and the Monitor appeared.
    destroying the sloop Cumberland and the 50-gun frigate Congress, while the frigate Minnesota ran aground.
    The Union side wanted the encounter to take place in the open sea. The Virginia, on the other hand, tried unsuccessfully to lure the Monitor into another battle in Hampton Roads harbour.

    Casualties
    At about 12:30 pm the Virginia headed for its navy yard; the battle was over.
    The wreck of the Monitor was located in 1973, and in 2002 marine salvagers raised the ship’s gun turret and other artifacts from the wreckage.
    Thus the stage was set for the dramatic naval battle of March 9, with crowds of Union and Confederate supporters watching from the decks of nearby vessels and the shores on either side.
    Winner
    The Virginia’s spectacular success on March 8 had not only marked an end to the day of wooden navies but had also thrilled the South and raised the false hope that the Union blockade might be broken.
    The Virginia, on the other hand, tried unsuccessfully to lure the Monitor into another battle in Hampton Roads harbor.
    While the battle was indecisive, it is difficult to exaggerate the profound effect on morale that was produced in both regions.
    Why did they win or lose
    ...
    The duel ended indecisively, Virginia returning to her home at the Gosport Navy Yard for repairs and strengthening, and Monitor to her station defending Minnesota. The ships did not fight again, and the blockade remained in place.
    Aftermath/Effects
    Both crews lacked training; firing was ineffective. The Monitor could fire only once in seven or eight minutes but was faster and more maneuverable than her larger opponent.
    After additional action and reloading, the Monitor’s pilothouse was hit, driving iron splinters into Worden’s eyes.
    The wreck of the Monitor was located in 1973, and in 2002 marine salvagers raised the ship’s gun turret and other artifacts from the wreckage.
