Here is as exciting a tale of sea adventure as any piece of fiction. Yet it is even more interesting as the first-hand account of one of the most fascinating--if least known--episodes of the Civil War, Raphael Semmes's cruise in the C.S.S. Sumter. Gosnell's introduction and conclusion furnish welcome information about the life of the man who was reviled as a pirate in the North and worshipped as a her in the South.Originally published in 1948.A UNC Press Enduring Edition -- UNC Press Enduring Editions use the latest in digital technology to make available again books from our distinguished backlist that were previously out of print.
