Observers at Fort Wool watched the battle of the USS Monitor and the CSS Virginia, formerly known as the USS Merrimack. It was burned when Union forces evacuated Norfolk. She survived because she burned to the waterline. The Confederate forces salvaged her, converted her to an ironclad and renamed her the Virginia. The battle is referred to as the Monitor - Merrimack Battle except to most of those of Southern heritage.
