I am interested in finding a set of rules that would include the early ironclads HMS Warrior, Scorpion, wyvern and others to fight some hypothetical action with US blockaders and monitors. Any advice would be most appreciated.

We like Sail and Steam Navies. All those ships stats are included with the rules.

Iron & Fire also has stats for all of these.

I don't think David Manley's newer fast-play rules Dahlgren & Columbiad have stats for Euroclads (yet), but it shouldn't be too hard to figure out. The system for generating ship stats are really simple. I mean to try. grin

All of these rules are available at wargamevault.com:

Iron & Fire: link

The Yaquinto Ironclads rules have shipcards for Warrior and Scorpion too. They might be in the expansion set, but I think they are in the original rules.
