Confederate ships topic for BRCWRT
Patrick Martin spoke about Confederate ships built in England when the Baton Rouge Civil War Round Table met on Aug. 19.
Martin noted that at the beginning of the American Civil War the Confederacy did not have a navy or facilities to construct and equip warships. Confederate states did not have the industrial base of the North, so shipbuilding was undertaken on a much smaller scale. Early in the war, the Union Gen. Winfield Scott drew up a strategy known as the “Anaconda Plan” to restrict water access to southern ports, which would deny the Confederacy of needed supplies.
Confederate Navy Secretary Stephen Mallory immediately embarked on a program that involved foreign shipyards to build ocean-going ships to draw the Union Navy away from the South and disrupt international commerce going to the North. Three raiders were built for the Confederacy in Liverpool, England. The most famous of these was the CSS Alabama commanded by Adm. Raphael Semmes, which sank 64 vessels until it was sunk in a battle with the USS Kearsarge in the English Channel. Semmes was rescued from the channel by a yacht and taken to England, where he was received as a hero. After the war, England was made to pay damages inflicted by the ships built for the Confederacy, Martin said.
