For two years, she slipped, largely unseen, across the waters of the Atlantic, recording over 60 victories and intercepting nearly $6 million worth of goods from the Union. Under the command of Captain Raphael Semmes, the sloop Alabama was the most feared vessel of the Civil War. GHOST SHIP OF THE CONFEDERACY is a detailed look at the career of this fabled vessel, based largely on the extensive diaries of Captain Semmes and her officers, as well as countless other Civil War documents from both sides. Discover how she earned her legend as a "ghost ship" from her practice of re-supplying at sea using spoils captured from defeated ships. Relive her greatest victories with Civil War historians, and learn the remarkable tale of her defeat, when she was sunk off the coast of France by the USS Kersage after an epic battle in which 250 rounds were exchanged.
