I'm contemplating a shadow box diorama of the interior of the Virginia. Were the gunports closed in any manner similar to those of the Monitor for loading of the cannons? I believe I've read where there were ports and they were 'clamshell' types that were hinged at the top and were operated by a pulley and rope system.
Thanks for any help.
