This book presents a look at the 'Lelia' and her passengers on a dramatic voyage leaving Liverpool in January 1864. When the Lelia left Liverpool on her maiden voyage on 14th January 1865, among those aboard were Arthur Sinclair, a Commander in the Confederate Navy, and Thomas Miller, representative of his family's Liverpool shipbuilding company which had built her. Each of them had become embroiled in the unfolding of the American Civil War and their paths converged that day in Liverpool. This book recounts the events that brought Arthur Sinclair and Thomas Miller together. The Confederacy arranged for suitable ships to be built at Liverpool while attempting to avoid arousing the suspicions of the Union spies. The author captures the atmosphere of the innovation in Liverpool. Dramatic wrecks and rescues near Liverpool are described. Many blockade runners were built, some a success, some a failure, culminating in the tragic maiden voyage of the Lelia. The discovery and present appearance of the wreck of the Lelia are reported and illustrated.
