Abstract:

Image shows the Union ships Monongahela, Hartford, and Chickasaw as they battle the Confederate ironclad Tennessee during the Battle of Mobile Bay on August 5, 1864. "Admiral Farragut, with Hartford as his flagship, led a fleet consisting of 4 ironclad monitors and 14 wooden vessels. The Confederate naval force was composed of newly built ram Tennessee, Admiral Buchanan's flagship, and steamers Selma, Morgan, and Oaines; and backed by the powerful guns of Forts Morgan and Gaines in the Bay. From the firing of the first gun by Fort Morgan to the raising of the white flag of surrender by Tennessee little more than 3 hours elapsed-but 3 hours of terrific fighting on both sides. The Confederates had only 32 casualties, while the Union forces suffered 335 casualties, including 113 men drowned in Tecumseh when the monitor struck a torpedo and sank."--Dictionary of American Naval Fighting Ships.
