At the start of the American Civil War, neither side had warships
on the Mississippi River and in the first few months both sides
scrambled to gather a flotilla, converting existing riverboats for
naval use. These ships were transformed into powerful naval weapons
despite a lack of resources, trained manpower and suitable vessels.
The creation of a river fleet was a miracle of ingenuity,
improvisation and logistics, particularly for the South. This title
describes their design, development and operation throughout the
American Civil War.
