Here are some interesting links around the interwebs concerning the Civil War navies:
"Rebels Down Under Exhibition" - The ship that brought the American Civil War into Port Phillip in 1865 is the focus of a new exhibition at Seaworks at Williamstown (Victoria, Australia).
Confederate Navy Prisoners of War on the Civil War Days & Those Surnames Blog.
Here is a nice link to our friend Craig Swain on his great contributions thus far to the Civil War Navy Sesquicentennial. If you have not had a chance to check out his blog (To the Sound of the Guns), it is highly recommended.
For our Pennsylvania fans, you can also keep in mind that there will be a free lecture at Gettysburg National Military Park: “‘One of the most cowardly and disgraceful acts’: The Destruction of the Norfolk Navy Yard." The lecture will be held at the Gettysburg National Military Park visitor center at 1:30 pm. For more information, go to www.nps.gov/gett or call 717-334-1124 extension 8023.
