Most would call this the the Merrimack.  But in this configuration it was the CSS Virginia.

The Merrimack was a US Navy steam frigate that was scuttled.  The Confederates raised the hull and built the CSS Virginia.

My dad was a big Civil War buff.  He had (great?) Grandfathers who fought on both sides.  One was wounded at Gettysburg.
