As some of you know I recently was given a book of photos which includes some of my immediate family. These two are from that collection.

The American Civil War

The American Civil War, arguably the most traumatic event in the history of the United States, was fought from 1861 to 1865, and was the culmination of sectional issues which deeply divided the country between a pro-Federal government North and a pro-states rights, in the pro-slavery South, whose eleven states formed a breakaway government called the Confederate States of America. The costliest war in terms of human lives, the American Civil War claimed in excess of 620,000 battle or disease-related deaths - roughly two percent of the country's total population, and nearly more deaths than all other American wars combined.

I'm doing an image of the CSS Arkansas running the Union Fleet. Built a few 3D models to put it all together but cant seem to get a consensus on what ships were actually involved. One map doesn't show any of the City Class ironclads and another says there were up to 39 union ships. I have the Benton, Essex, Hartford and some others but have you come across any research that states which ships were involved?
I have heard and repeated a picture is worth a thousand words (cough)….Just thinking.
