Naubuc I
(Mon.: dp. 1,175; 1. 225': b. 45'3"; dr. 7'1". s. 9 k.; a. 2 XI-inch D. sb.; GL Casco)

The first Naubuc, laid down as a light-draft monitor at Perine's Union Iron Works, Williamsburgh, N.Y., was launched 19 October 1864. However, as with others of her class, she W.IS of faulty design and was found to be unseaworthy prior to her completion. She was then converted to a torpedo boat, 4th rate, with one XI-inch Dahlgren smoothbore, and Wood-Lay spar torpedo equipment. Commissioned 27 March 1865, Aeting Master Gilbert Dayton in command she saw no service and on 27 June 1865 was ordered to be 1aid up at the New York Navy Yard. In 1869, while at the Navy Yard, she was renamed twice: Gorgon, 15 June, and Minnetonka, 10 August. In 1875, she was broken up by Harlan and Hollingsworth, Wilmington, Del.

Naubuc I monitor - History

Most of the Civil War monitors were designed by John Ericsson, and used a turret of his own design. Ericsson's monitors were built with a shoal iron hull supporting an ironclad "raft", the raft being the only portion visible above water. The raft was of very low freeboard, and generally featured a large overhang all around, particularly at the bow and stern. The joining of the iron hull to the overhanging raft was a weak point in most designs.

Most of the surviving ships went into reserve ("ordinary") immediately after the Civil War. Most remained in reserve for many years, generally with little or no additional service, before finally being disposed of.

Monitor coastal monitor
Displacement: 987 tons
Dimensions: 172 x 41.5 x 10.5 feet/52.42 x 12.64 x 3.2 meters
Propulsion: Ericsson VL engines, 2 boilers, 320 hp, 1 shaft, 6 knots
Crew: 49
Armor: Iron: 2-4.5 inch sides, 1 inch deck, 8-9 inch turret
Armament: 1 dual turret with 2x11 inch Dahlgren smoothbore

Concept/Program: The first "monitor", and gave her name to the type. The vessel was intended as a means to counter Confederate ships attempting to challenge the blockade of southern ports the type also saw considerable service in attacking coastal fortifications. This was the first US warship fitted with a turret.

Design: Designed by Ericsson. Set the standard pattern for all following monitors. In addition to the general weaknesses of the type (i.e. seaworthiness), ventilation was very poor (despite the first use of mechanical ventilation in a warship), leading to terrible conditions for the crew. The originally planned armor had to be much reduced to increase freeboard even so, freeboard was only 14 inches. The turret mechanism was imprecise and difficult to work. The anchor and hawsepipe were below the "raft", in the hull itself, dangerously close to the water. There was a small pilothouse forward, and low funnels aft. Design speed of 8 knots was not reached. Despite design flaws, this ship set the stage for future monitors and battleships.

Operational: Is best known for her engagement with CSS Virginia (a.k.a. " Merrimac " in Hampton Roads, 9 March 1862 this battle was the first ironclad-vs.-ironclad encounter, and the start of the modern battleship era.

Contracted to John Ericsson construction subcontracted to Continental Iron Works, Greenpoint, NY. Laid down 25 October 1861, launched 30 January 1862, commissioned 25 February 1862.

Engaged CSS Virginia 9 March 1862. Participated in actions on the James River and supported Army forces during the summer of 1862. Sank under tow off Cape Hatteras during a Force 7 gale, 31 December 1862.

Passaic class monitors
Displacement: 1,875 tons
Dimensions: 200 x 46 x 10.5 feet/60.96 x 14.01 x 3.2 meters
Propulsion: Ericsson VL engines, 2 boilers, 320 hp, 1 shaft, 4-5 knots
Crew: 75
Armor: Iron: 3-5 inch sides, 1 inch deck, 11 inch turret
Armament: 1 dual turret with 1x15 inch Dahlgren smoothbore, 1x11 inch Dahlgren smoothbore ( Patapsco 1x15 inch Dahlgren smoothbore, 1x8 inch Parrot MLR Camanche 2x15 inch Dahlgren smoothbore)

Concept/Program: An improved version of Monitor , correcting several of the deficiencies of that ship. Most of these vessels were contracted to their designer, John Ericsson, who then subcontracted the actual construction of the ships to various shipyards. Several of these monitors were renamed during 1869, then returned to their original names within a few weeks.

Design: Designed by Ericsson. Compared to Monitor , there was better ventilation, higher funnels, improved "raft" and hull shape, and the pilothouse was atop the turret. Seaworthiness was evidently improved, as Lehigh survived a Force 10 gale off Cape Hatteras, perhaps the worst conditions survived by any ship of this general type. One major weakness was extreme vulnerability to mines.

Variations: Two units were completed with variant armament, as listed above Lehigh had her 11 inch replaced by an 8 inch Parrot MLR soon after completion.

Modernization: Following the attacks on Charleston there were improvements in armor around the turret and pilothouse bases, turret roof, and decks over magazines and machinery. Two light guns of various types were also fitted in most or all units. All surviving units were eventually fitted with two 15 inch Dahlgren smoothbores.

Operational: Saw extensive service during the Civil War, almost exclusively during the attacks on Charleston, and the blockade of surrounding waters. Postwar they saw little action, but survived to the late 1890's and early 1900's, and were recommissioned for "coast defense" during the Spanish American War.

Departure from Service/Disposal: All the survivors were discarded within a few years of 1900, by which time they were quite old and completely obsolete. Although nominally in reserve, towards the end of their existence (especially after the Spanish-American War), they were probably poorly maintained and in no condition to return to service.

Onondaga monitor
Displacement: 2,551 tons
Dimensions: 228.5 x 51 x 13 feet/69.67 x 15.6 x 3.91 meters
Propulsion: HRC engines, 4 boilers, 420 hp, 2 shafts, 7 knots
Crew: 150
Armor: Iron: 5.5 inch sides, 1 inch deck, 11 inch turrets
Armament: 2 dual turrets, each with 1x15 inch Dahlgren smoothbore, 1x8 inch Parrot MLR

Concept/Program: A larger purpose-built monitor, essentially the equivalent of two Passaic class ships. In service she saw only riverine duties, but was intended for coastwise duties as well.

Design: Designed by Quintard. Had a conventional iron hull with 14" freeboard. Turrets were essentially identical to those of the Passaic class.

Operational: During the Civil War she served only on the James River.

Miantonomoh class monitors
Displacement: 3,400 tons
Dimensions: 258.5 x 53 x 13 feet/78.8 x 16.07 x 3.86 meters
Propulsion: HRCR engines ( Agamenticus , Mondnock : Ericsson VL engines), 4 boilers, 2 shafts, 1,400 ihp, 9 knots (design), 6.5 knots actual in some ships
Crew: 150
Armor: Iron: 5 inch sides, 1.5 inch decks, 10 inch turrets
Armament: 2 dual turrets, each with 2x15 inch Dahlgren smoothbore

Concept/Program: Larger dual-turreted monitors, generally considered the best US monitors of the era. Two ships of the class undertook major ocean voyages, indicating a vast improvement in seaworthiness over the earlier classes.

Design: Designed by the Navy. The hull was of conventional form, but was unfortunately wooden, not iron. Freeboard was 31 inches. The turrets were similar to those of the Passaic class, but slightly larger a pilothouse was fitted atop each turret. There was a light hurricane deck between the turrets, a tall funnel and a tall ventilation shaft. There were variations among the ships, and some sources identify them as four one-ship classes. Tonawanda 's turrets were closer together than in the other three ships.

Departure from Service/Disposal: By the 1870's the wooden hulls were badly rotted, and the ships were disposed of. They were nominally "repaired" as "New Navy" monitors, but in fact the old wooden ships were sold to the shipbuilders as partial payment for the new iron ships, and were scrapped.

Battle of Hampton Roads [ edit ]

As Monitor approached Cape Henry on the afternoon of 8 March, CSS Virginia, the former U.S. steam frigate Merrimack — now rebuilt as an ironclad ram — steamed out of the Elizabeth River into Hampton Roads and attacked the wooden hulled Union warships blockading Norfolk. Captain Franklin Buchanan, the Confederate commander, singled out sailing sloop Cumberland as his first victim.

She opened the engagement when less than a mile distant from Cumberland and the firing became general from blockaders and shore batteries but most shots from the Union guns glanced harmlessly off the Confederate ironclad's slanted sides. Virginia rammed Cumberland below the waterline and she sank rapidly. Buchanan later reported the Union sailors remained “gallantly fighting her guns as long as they were above water.” Buchanan next turned Virginia's attention on the frigate Congress, which had run hard aground while attempting to close, and the frigate was set ablaze with hot shot and incendiary shell. She also damaged Minnesota before retiring to Sewell's Point for the night.

Monitor's crew could hear the roar of cannon as they rounded Cape Henry into Chesapeake Bay and headed toward the scene of battle. But all was quiet when she hove-to alongside Roanoke. Captain Marston directed Worden to assist battered Minnesota, hard aground off Newport News.

At dawn, Virginia again emerged and headed toward Minnesota to administer the coup de grace. Monitor steamed out of Minnesota's shadow to intercept the Confederate ironclad ram. A Confederate officer on CSS Patrick Henry, one of Virginia's paddle wheel consorts, described the Union challenger as “an immense shingle floating on the water with a gigantic cheese box rising from its center no sails, no wheels, no smokestack, no guns.” But the unusual federal vessel soon won the respect of friend and foe alike, fighting the Confederate ironclad to a standstill in an exhausting four-hour duel. With both warships damaged and running low on shot, Virginia retired to Sewell’s point after failing to break the Federal blockade.

List of United States Navy monitors

The list of United States Navy monitors includes the United States Navy ships designated as monitors .

Monitors were named after the ironclad USS Monitor , the first ship of its kind to be built and used by the Northern States during the American Civil War . They were relatively small and slow, but armed with very heavy artillery in one or two turrets . As platforms that were only partially seaworthy for a few large-caliber guns, they were designed for use in coastal waters and on rivers. H. for coastal defense or to attack land targets.

At the end of the Civil War, the Northern Fleet had 50 monitors in service or under construction.

During the Spanish-American War in 1898, the USA once again used monitors, which, however, already corresponded more to the coastal armored ships of European navies.

The US Navy used monitors for a third time when it converted 24 LCM (6) landing craft from WWII into river monitors for the Brown Water Navy during the Vietnam War . Eight of them were each having a 105-mm howitzer armed M49, six with flame-throwers of the type M10-8 and ten 40 mm grenade launchers.

How to Use Router to Monitor Which Websites Are Visited

We live in an age where the internet rules and controls pretty much everything in our lives. Everybody in our lives, from our children, our partners and our employees all use the internet daily, but this, of course, doesn't come without its problems.

Perhaps your children are accessing pornography on their devices? Maybe your partner is addicted to online gambling or messaging people they shouldn't be? In some cases, your employees may be slack in their work and are accessing the content they need from time to time. In these cases, have you considered tracking their router history?

Whatever the problem you may be facing, the best way to approach it is to get proof, so you know for sure. Today, we're going to teach you everything you need to know.

Can a Wi-Fi Owner See What Websites I Visit?

Asking yourself whether someone can see what sites I visit on wifi?

In short, the answer is Yes they can see what sites I visit on wifi. While many websites and services offer data encryption services to protect your data, this isn't always as secure as you might think. For example, if you're reading an email, looking at a picture, or reading an article, the Wi-Fi will not be able to see the type of content that you're consuming.

However, they will be able to see the IP addresses and the URLs of the websites that you've been visiting, so this is the information they'll need to see what content you're accessing. For example, while they won't be able to see the porn video you're watching, they'll be able to see which page you were on, so they can find out easily.

This is all possible through a wifi history viewer, or you can simply check router history yourself on your computer.
