The battle featured two of the most advanced warships of its day, the Mexican steamship-of-war Guadalupe and the equally formidable Moctezuma, commanded by British Royal Navy personnel on loan to the Mexican navy, as well as several sailing ships, against the sailing ships of the Texas Navy, consisting of the flagship Austin, commanded by Commodore Edwin Ward Moore, and the brig Wharton, and a couple of ships from the Republic of Yucatn, commanded by former Texas Navy Captain James D. Boylan. Texas had declared its independence in 1836 but Mexico did not recognize the Republic of Texas. In Yucatn, a similar rebellion had begun and was fought off-and-on from 1836 to 1846.

The outcome was inconclusive, with no casualties, and the blockade went on. It remained the only battle of the German fleet.

Either side may claim victory once 60 VPs have been earned. </p></li><li><p> 5 </p><p>American Civil War (1860-1865) Hampton Roads (March 8-9, 1862) Monitor vs. the Merrimack </p><p> (From Wikipedia) The Battle of Hampton Roads, often referred to as the Battle of the Monitor and Merrimack (or Merrimac), was the most noted and arguably most important naval battle of the American Civil War from the standpoint of the development of navies. It was fought over two days, March 89, 1862, in Hampton Roads, a roadstead in Virginia where the Elizabeth and Nansemond Rivers meet the James River just before it enters Chesapeake Bay. The battle was a part of the effort of the Confederacy to break the Union blockade, which had cut off Virginia's largest cities, Norfolk and Richmond, from international trade. The major significance of the battle is that it was the first meeting in combat of ironclad warships. </p></li><li><p> 6 </p><p>Hampton Roads Day 1 (March 8, 1862) </p><p>Union Fleet (CR846) Deployed within 5 hexes of the Union Deployment star near Newport News Bar.

Therefore, in early June the Rebel army abandoned Memphis and its nearby forts. Most of the garrison was sent to join units elsewhere, including Vicksburg, and only a small rear guard was left to make a token resistance. The River Defense Fleet would also have retreated to Vicksburg, but they could not get enough coal in Memphis. Unable to flee when the Federal fleet appeared on June 6, Montgomery and his captains had to decide whether to fight or scuttle their boats. They chose to fight, steaming out in the early morning to meet the advancing flotilla and the rams trailing behind it. </p></li><li><p> 10 </p><p>Union Fleet (CR380) Deployed within 5 hexes of the Union Deployment star.

Three Federal vessels were sighted steaming towards the CSS Arkansas, the ironclad Carondelet, the wooden gunboat Tyler, and the ram Queen of the West. </p></li><li><p> 12 </p><p>Union Fleet (CR130) Deployed within 5 hexes of the Union Deployment star.

The striking force was a fleet of nine ironclad warships of the Union Navy, including seven monitors that were improved versions of the original USS Monitor. A Union Army contingent associated with the attack took no active part in the battle. The ships, under command of Rear Admiral Samuel Francis Du Pont, attacked the Confederate defenses near the entrance to Charleston Harbor. Navy Department officials in Washington hoped for a stunning success that would validate a new form of warfare, with armored warships mounting heavy guns reducing traditional forts. </p></li><li><p> 14 </p><p>Union Fleet (CR1323) Deployed within 5 hexes of the Union Deployment star.
