About this title

Synopsis:

Accompanied by first-hand accounts and vintage photographs, an enthralling book brings to life the famous battles at sea during the Civil War by detailing the development of ships from the first iron-clad battleships to river runners.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 6-10-Every student of the Civil War can recite facts about the famous battle between the ironclad ships Monitor and Merrimac. However, very few could tell you about the battle of the Union ship Kearsarge and the Confederate Alabama that took place in the English Channel in 1864 or about Admiral Farragut and the Battle of Mobile Bay. In this interesting and well-written book, Sullivan seeks to rectify this situation. He lays part of the blame for this lapse in knowledge on the dearth of action photographs of the battles. Photographers such as Mathew Brady couldn't get pictures of naval battles as they occurred simply because no one knew when or where they might take place. Thus, tales of the heroics at sea have often been lost. The illustrations and reproductions included here and the lively text will appeal to every Civil War buff, and will be an excellent source of information for reports.-Elizabeth M. Reardon, McCallie School, Chattanooga, TN
