The U.S.S. Cumberland sailed into Hampton Roads, Va. and took up station as a blockader. She served as one several ships of the North Atlantic Blockading Squadron until 8 March 1862. The sloop-of-war engaged Confederate forces in several minor actions in Hampton Roads and captured many small ships in the harbor. Additionally, the Cumberland was part of the expedition that captured the forts at Cape Hatteras. The Cumberland was rammed and sunk by the C.S.S. Virginia, (commonly referred to as the Merrimac) in an engagement known as the first day of the Battle of Hampton Roads. Considered to be a turning point in the history of world naval affairs, it showed the advantage of steam powered, armored ships over sail powered wooden hulled vessels. It should be noted that because of the Cumberland, the Virginia lost two of her guns, her ram, and suffered some internal damage. Congress later recognized that the Cumberland did more damage to Virginia than the U.S. Navy's ironclad U.S.S. Monitor, which did battle with Virginia the next day. The wood fragment to the left originated from the Cumberland and the fragment on the right from the Virginia. Double matted in museum quality mats of gray and red. 11 x 14. Comes with certificate of authenticity.
