Updates and Admiral's Row: Week of 21 November 2011

On This Day: 21 November 2011:

Coming from our friends at the Museum of the Confederacy:  On this day in 1861, CSA forts McRee, Barrancas, & the Pensacola Navy Yard were bombarded by Union naval guns & Ft. Pickens.

You can see a more incorporated outlook HERE via Huffington Post.

Around the Internet/Blogosphere:

"See the Elephant:"  Civil War Monitor blogger Laura June Davis posted an interesting quote from Confederate States Navy officer Douglas French Forrest last week (17 November) about his experiences aboard CSS Rappahannock.  Let's just say he was a little disturbed, but not sick.
