The second of my posts on Island No. 10 is up at the Civil War Monitor’s Front Line Blog, so please click over and check it out.

And while you are clicking, check out this post at Vince’s excellent Lancaster at War blog.  A first hand account from a navy mortar crew-member on the river.  Which dovetails in to my next few posts about those big mortars!
