by Alex Christopher Meekins

From the publisher:
An account of a little-known theater of the Civil War.

In February of 1862, a Union naval force captured Elizabeth City. This fascinating history characterizes the overall situation in the notheastern North Carolina, where secessionists and Union sympathizers tangled right up until the Battle of Appomattox.
