Naval battles of the American Civil War were a common occurrence just as they are with many wars. The naval engagements of the American Civil War though were different in the sense that they dramatically altered the foundations of naval warfare. Although not invented as a result of the war, the use of ironclads, submarine warfare, and the introduction of newer and more powerful naval artillery ushered in a new era of war at sea.

On June 22, 1865, the Confederate raider CSS Shenandoah fired last shot of the Civil War in the Bering Strait, more than two months after Lee's surrender.
