  1. Armed, but not terribly armored.

  2. USS Galena - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Galena_(1862). Note projecting unexploded shell just above waterline.

    The hull below the waterline was wood, but the upper sides did carry some armor backing.

  3. Did they use pointed projos in their cannons back then?
