The Stonewall was a foreign-built ironclad which joined the Confederate service toward the end of the Civil War. Named for Lee's inspiring general, Stonewall Jackson, the ship was built at Bordeaux, France by L'Aman, ostensibly for the Danish navy. Like the Scorpion and Wivern, she was the object of intense Union pressure, and it was only with much legerdemain that Stonewall was delivered to the Confederates and commissioned in October 1864.
