Overview

Who 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, and informative--and just plain fun.
