    100 Pdr. Parrott at Yorktown, Virginia in 1862


This war-time photo shows two rows of `chill nose` bolts lined up, ready for use against Confederate positions or ships. The Confederate loss of Yorktown on the penninsula, north of Ft. Monroe, precipitated a number of negative events regarding the southern cause. The CSS Virginia was still in Hampton Roads BELOW Yorktown, so with Confederate troops and supply units leaving the area, the rebel ironclad was vulnerable as its deep draft prevented it from moving up the James River toward Richmond. It was burned to prevent capture as Union troops advanced along the river`s edge. Ultimately the loss of Yorktown resulted in the Union advance along the James to within only 8 miles of the Capitol of the Confederacy.
