The article offers information on the U.S. Ship Monitor that was used during the 1860s. On March 9, 1862, the Monitor saved the Union ships in port, and perhaps more, as she fended off shot and shell from the CSS Virginia. Pictures of the historic ship were taken by James F. Gibson, a photographer. A photograph of the ship is presented, which features the turret with the muzzle of one of her two XI-inch Dahlgren smoothbore guns visible.
