Continued Battle Description and Results
They also practiced artillery firing by attacking Fort McAllister, then a small three-gun earthwork battery.

On March 3, 1863, the three ironclads conducted an eight-hour bombardment. The bombardment did not destroy the battery but did some damage, while the three ironclads received some scratches and dents. The tests were helpful for knowledge and experience gained, but the fort did not fall, showing that the ironclads’ firepower could not destroy an earthen fort.

Results: Confederate victory
