Best Answer

The first ironclad for the Confederacy was the CSS Virginia. It had been the USS Merrimack and previously been left for "dead" when Confederate troops assaulted the Union base at Norfolk, Virginia. The Union burned it lest it fall into Confederate hands. Southern engineers salvaged the hull of the Merrimack and rebuilt it with thick iron sides, and added her with canons on each side.
