Mobile Under Siege : Surviving the Union Blockade (Paperback) (Paula Lenor Webb)
About this item
On August 5, 1864, the Civil War arrived at Mobile’s doorstep. The Union navy blockaded Mobile Bay and the city for eight months. Confederate general Dabney Maury fought to protect the city and its citizens who refused to leave, such as Octavia LeVert and Augusta Evans. Union admiral Farragut and General Canby slowly starved the city, knowing that the fall of Mobile could end the war. Author Paula Webb details the experiences of the ordeal and the defeat of a Confederate city that echoed through the entire country.
