The Cruise of the Confederate Ship "Sumter". (From the Private Journal of an Officer)

[Frank Drake]


Diary, Travelogue


Steamships, War

    Relates the impudent successes against Union ships enjoyed during the early part of the American Civil War by a Southern 'steam war-vessel' (191). The ship's blockade-running progress across the Atlantic is halted finally only by its 'boilers being completely worn out' (205).
