Summary
"From October 1864 to November 1865 the CSS Shenandoah carried the Civil War around the globe, through every extreme of sea and storm. Her officers represented a cross section of the Confederacy, from Old Dominion first families through the Deep South aristocracy to a middle-class Missourian. Among these men were a nephew of Robert E. Lee, a grandnephew of founder George Mason, a son-in-law to Raphael Semmes, grandsons of men who fought at George Washington's side, and an uncle of Theodore Roosevelt. They considered themselves Americans, Southerners, rebels, and warriors embarking on the voyage of their lives, defending their country as they understood it and pursuing a difficult, dangerous mission in which they succeeded spectacularly after it no longer mattered. This book is, as Adm. Raphael Semmes describes, a biography of a cruise and a microcosm of the Confederate-American experience"--
