Description
 
A.A. Hoehling (au). The great land battles of the Civil War have often overshadowed naval actions. The Civil War at sea was demanding, real, & frightening. It is told here in the words of the participants, North & South alike. The stories of the epic battle between the Merrimack & the Monitor, of Davy Farragut’s entrance into Mobile Bay, & of the Alabama’s disruption of Union shipping before her sinking at the hands of the USS Kearsarge have seldom been told with such concern for the thoughts of the principals themselves. Includes the stories of such events as the fleets of ferryboats hurriedly turned into men-of-war, & of the brash Confederate raider who brought the war as far north as Portland, Maine. B&W photos.
