Civil War Lecture: CSS Nashville

December 9 @ 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM

Civil War Lecture: CSS Nashville

Presented by John V. Quarstein, Director Emeritus, USS Monitor Center

The Confederate Navy introduced commerce to the Civil War when the CSS Nashville sank the merchant marine Harvey Birch. Commerce raiders decimated the American merchant marine and whaling ships; however, the Nashville might have been the first; yet, not the most successful. It was trapped near Savannah, Georgia, and was destroyed by the monitor USS Montauck, captained by Commander John. L. Worden.
