Here is a rich panorama of fascinating Civil War history: the war's first deaths on the streets of Baltimore; Abraham Lincoln on the deck of the revenue cutter Miami; Franklin Buchanan of Talbot County commanding the ironclad C.S.S. Virginia as she sounds the death knell for the age of sail; Naval Academy instructor John Taylor Wood becoming one of the most feared Confederate raiders on the Bay; the P.O.W. camp at Point Lookout with its horrific death toll; the imprisonment of Jefferson Davis at Fort Monroe, the Gibraltar of the Chesapeake.
