The Monitor had two guns, but the shutters were such that only one could be open at a time. They were difficult to operate and so, as I understand it, the Monitor would fire a single gun as the turret turned.

There was at least one report that said they removed the shutter so both guns could be operated at the same time. I have some doubts about that.

I need to look at the sources and see whether in fact both guns might have been fired simultaneously.
