When was the CSS Virginia on the Mississippi, and how did it get there?

“When was the CSS Virginia on the Mississippi...”

I believe he means the James River and Hampton Roads.

It was the Union that fielded Monitor type vessels on the Mississippi.

From what I read of the Civil War, the Merrimac terrorized the Mississippi and the New England coast before it was finally confronted by the Monitor. The Mississippi was a front in the Civil war because it was easily accessed by both sides.
