This new and fully annotated edition of Cushing's memoir, originally written in 1867/1868, conveys the excitement and drama of a truly extraordinary Civil War naval career, enhanced with excerpts from Union and Confederate officers. Recounts adventures at Hatteras Inlet, the Virginia Capes and the Battle of Hampton Roads, Blackwater River, the Battle of New River, Little River, Nansemond River, Gettysburg, Fort Fisher, and Wilmington.
