The Narrative of a Blockade Runner
$13.00


by John Wilkinson
originally published in 1877
paperback; 252 pages

During the four years of the War Between the States, more than 8,000 steamers were engaged by the Confederates in running the Federal blockade. Loaded to the gunwales with contraband cotton, these remarkable vessels cleared Southern ports and, if successful in their missions, returned with valuable war supplies. Captain John Wilkinson was the quintessential blockade-runner, whose audacious tactics were widely imitated by others. This book, first published in 1877, recalls his command of an ironclad ram during the defense of New Orleans, his capture and brief imprisonment, his leadership of a daring raid to free thousands of prisoners of war on Johnson's Island in Lake Erie, and his raids of enemy merchant ships within sight of Long Island, New York.
