I’m running a bit behind again on today’s post. Furthermore, this is another “over there” post.
One hundred and fifty years ago this afternoon, Confederates ambushed and captured the Federal gunboat USS Isaac Smith. In observance of that event, today’s post is a cross posting over at the Civil War Navy Sesquicentennial blog.
Yes, I do have a special fondness for the Civil War activity in those low country marshes.
