Subject: RE: Gunfire along the Gulf.

Message Detail:
Gunfire on the Gulf goes to the top of my want list now, that someone has commented favorably on it
Arthur Bergeron's book "Confederate Mobile", ahs also been reprinted by LSU Press IIRC. It covers the war years of the city and its importance to the south and the military maneuvers involved in defending the port. A few topics looked at are the erection of fortifications, blockade running, some on the creation of the Confederate Navy and the roles of comanding generals.
Its a good follow up to Hearns "Battle Of Mobile Bay".
