commanded the CSS Virginia when she battled the USS Monitor
in the first ever clash between armored warships? What U.S. warship
was sunk by the CSS Alabama? Who commanded the CSS Florida?
Who was the Confederate Navy's purchasing agent in Europe? Who invented
the spar torpedo?
These and hundreds of other questions about the Confederate States
Navy are asked and answered in Confederate Navy Quizzes and Facts.
Much has been written about the Confederate armies, their battles
and their great and not-so-great leaders. Relatively little, in
comparison, has been published concerning Confederate naval forces.
This is beginning to change, however, as more and more historians,
educators, and just plain "buffs" discover the world of
the Confederate Navy. Most of these researchers and readers, when
confronted with the facts, are simply astounded at the naval achievements
made by the South in just four years of horrific war. Whether you
are only mildly curious, or a rabid enthusiast of the Confederate
Navy, you will find what follows surprising, educational, interesting,
informative and just plain fun.
