CSS Alabama's only battle victim

     The wreckage of the only U.S. Navy ship actually sunk byThe CSS Alabama during a battle in The Civil War has been exposed somewhat by recent storms off the Texas Coast...and now the Federal Government is working to map the wreckage of The USS Hatteras before it is covered up again.
     The sinking happened on January 11, 1863.
     Read the news release from The NOAA Office of National Marine Sanctuaries here.
     I know there have not been many entries on this site, but I hope the research we did helps visitors for whatever reason they come.
     At my other site...www.TimLennox.com...I'm posting articles about Semmes and the CSS Alabama during this 150th Civil War anniversary year.
