Some excellent reading has been recommended. In addition, a couple of books about the primary commanders of Union gunboat operations would be "Admiral David Dixon Porter" by Chester Hearn and "Lincoln's Admiral-The CW Campaigns of David Farragut" by James Duffy would be a start.what would I need to read?
While not devoted entirely to the subject, Civil War St Louis has a good chapter devoted to Eads ironclads, construction and overview of them in action.If I wanted to make myself an expert on Union gunboat operations on the rivers in the Western Theater, what would I need to read?
