THE CIVIL WAR: BIRTHPLACE OF THE NEW NAVY
AbstractWhen the campaigns of the American Civil War are recalled the names that come to mind are Petersburg, Gettysburg, Manassas, Fredericksburg and Bull Run. All of these were land battles, yet the soldiers' war contributed very little to the tactics or weaponry of modern warfare. On the other hand the unpublicised naval engagements of the era were punctuated with innovations that have remained part of today's Navy.
