OFFICIAL RECORDS OF THE UNION AND CONFEDERATE NAVIES IN THE WAR OF THE REBELLION These compilations are drawn from the official Navy records of the American Civil War, (called the "OR") published in 1897. The original records are extensive (roughly 6 large volumes per year of war) and so we are offering here some highlights of crucial battles of the war. The Hampton Roads Battles of March 8th and 9th, 1862. Union Navy Records, October 17, 1861 to March 7, 1862. Covers the construction of the USS Monitor and the preparations (including spying) of the blockade fleet at Hampton Roads. Union Navy Records, Hampton Roads battles. Union Navy and Army telegrams and reports relating to the naval battle fought at Hampton Roads on March 8 and 9, 1862. Includes reports from the steam frigate USS Minnesota and the ironclad USS Monitor. Confederate Navy Records, September 20, 1861 to March 7, 1862. Covers the rebuilding of the steam frigate USS Merrimack into the CSS Virginia, her much delayed provisioning and preparations (also including spying) for the attack on the blockading Union fleet at Hampton Roads. Confederate Navy Records, Report of Flag-Officer Franklin Buchanan

The combat of the Merrimac and the Monitor made the greatest change in sea-fighting since cannon fired by gunpowder had been mounted on ships...
¬óWinston Churchill, History of the English-Speaking Peoples For the navies, the American Civil War began on 12 April 1861 when Fort Sumter was fired upon, and it ended on 23 June 1865 with the official raising of the blockade. However, the first shots of the war were really those fired at the steamer Star of the West as she approached Charleston Harbor on 9 January 1861; and the cruiser CSS Shenandoah did not finally haul down her flag until 7 November 1865. In between these dates occurred more naval actions than in the rest of the world combined in the period between 1815 and 1914. Usually thought of as a land war, the American Civil War was also by far the largest naval war of the era. Action occurred in the English Channel, in the Indian Ocean, and the Bering Sea, as well as along the Southern and Northern coasts and up the rivers. Some hardly qualified as skirmishes; some were wholesale battles with major strategic consequences. At the junction of naval warfare and industrial technology were two very special types of ship, the likes of which had hardly ever been seen before in the world. The ironclads were the advent of the modern armored, self-propelled warship, and the blockade runners took wholesale smuggling to new technological heights. Under the immense pressure of war, technology advanced at a breakneck pace. These pages are dedicated to these fascinating ships, their designers, and the valiant crews of both sides who sailed and fought them.

    The American Civil War
    "Naval War" This portion of the Home of the Civil War website is designed to provide the reader with a brief insight into a little known aspect of the late Rebellion, The Naval War. While this portion of the Rebellion is little discussed, both the Federal and the Confederate Navies played a vital part in the war. The early establishment of the blockade and Farragut's capture of New Orleans not only brought about the economic strangulation of the South but also killed any hope the Confederates had of French intervention . The Navy also had a critical role in the strategy that split the Confederacy by capturing the line of the Mississippi.
    In 1861 the US Navy was in a demoralized condition with its 1,457 officers and 7,600 men scattered all over the globe. Less than half of its 90 ships were ready for active service. Of its meager officer personnel, the following defected to the South: 16 captains, 34 commanders, 76 lieutenants, and 111 regular and acting midshipmen (Miller, VI, 78). Abandonment of the Norfolk Navy Yard, 20-21 Apr.'61, resulted in the loss of 11 ships and 3,000 pieces of ordnance. After Gideon Welles was appointed Sec. of the Navy, he and his assistant Sec., Gustavus V. Fox, built the US Navy in four years from 23 to 641 ships of all types. Birth of The Ironclads Ever thought about how the Merrimac came about? Here's a nice concise history of events that gave birth to the "first" ironclad.

    Much of the Civil War took place on the water, as the Union attempted to block Confederate traffic at sea, and the South responded by developing blockade runners to sneak past Union patrols. Also, the famed ironclads were built by both sides during the crucial struggle for control of coastal forts and inland waterways. Thunder at Hampton Roads: The U.S.S.

    Civil War Navies, 1855 - 1883
    by Paul H. Silverstone
    This second book in the series lists the ships of the U.S. Navy and the Confederate Navy during the war between the North and South and the years immediately followinga significant period in the evolution of warships, the use of steam propulsion, and the development of ordnance. Other books on the subject simply do not provide the wealth or variety of information brought together here by Paul Silverstone. Each ship's size and time and place of construction are given along with particulars of naval service. Historical details include actions fought, damage sustained, prizes taken and ships sunk, dates in and out of commission, as well as when the ship left the navy, names used in other services, and the ultimate fate of each ship. Close to 150 photographs, including one of the Confederate cruiser Alabama recently uncovered by the author, bring the ships to life. Accurate and up-to-date, the coverage provided in this single volume saves readers time and the inconvenience of trying to track down information located in numerous books.
