Event a success.
CSS Shenandoah was still waging effective attacks/sinkings on
Union shipping in the summer of 1865.
Receiving word from the British Trawler, Barracouta, that the
War was long over, Lt. Commanding Waddell, cancelled his planned
attack in the harbor of San Francisco and headed for the one place, to
avoid captured by a Union Navy hell bent on capturing the
CSS Shenandoah, Liverpool, England, thus he would avoid a death
sentence for himself and his Crew
A successful voyage to the River Mersey was accomplished, and a "HUGE
EMBARASSMENT TO THE U.S. GOVERNMENT" as the British authorities concluded
the CSS Shenandoah and her Officers and Crew were free to go their own way.
MUCH TO THE CHAGRIN OF THE U.S CONSUL IN ENGLAND.
Thanks for assisting in honoring the Confederate States Navy, as they most certainly
sustained the "War Effort" and enable the South to turn the tide in
favor of the Confederacy.
