Raphael Semmes (1809-1877) was one of the most famous confederates during the war and was reviled as a pirate by Northerners long after the war ended, because with the Sumter he took 17 Northern ships, and with the Alabama 55. He published a collection of memoirs and war reminiscences describing his service in the navy during the Civil War; however, his works are primarily looked at as a defense of his actions during the Confederacy’s inevitable loss, or ‘Lost Cause’.

 

‘The Cruise of the Alabama and the Sumter’ was compiled from the diary and other documents of Captain Semmes. It contains descriptions of events which took place during the Civil War following the battles, routes and blockades of the ships Alabama and Sumter.
