A readable, exciting chronicle of the men and ships that ran federal naval blockades during the Civil War. Within four weeks of the fall of Fort Sumter, President Abraham Lincoln had declared a blockade of over four thousand miles of Confederate coastline, from Cape Henry in Virginia to the Mexican border. In response, professional runners, lured by both profits and patriotism, built faster, sleeker, low-profile ships and piloted them through the ever-thickening Northern cordon. The tonnage they imported, including items ranging from straight pins to marine engines, sustained the South throughout the conflict. Blockade Runners of the Confederacy, first published in 1958, offered the first in-depth look at the dashing figures, spies, and fast ships that ran the blockade, as well as an overall assessment of the blockades conception, effectiveness, and impact on the Southern populace. Generations of historians and Civil War buffs have considered it invaluable; this paperback edition makes the work available once again to a new generation of enthusiasts and scholars.
